MY HEROINE
i love you i know what you’re going through
in time all things will pass away
it only lasts as long as you want it to
and surely there will come a day

at first i am the chosen one
except i don’t know who they chose
the christ of grandiosity
the buddha of the self imposed

desire burns me like an enemy
and train-wrecks every train of thought
the tracks are swollen in the agony
the steel it seems is overwrought

to search to loss, to only search again
to wait for some release on high
the damsel jonesing for his heroine
the heart is calling to the sky

and should she swoop down in the aftermath
she’d weep for what she’d surely find
a broken man whose heart is made of glass
whose tears are surely made of wine

i shed in agony
so pour yourself over me
i shed this old me in agony
so open up and cover me

and i’ll never be alone

the beast we send to calm the beast
the hands we lend on froze accounts
the bear we bait to entertain
will only ever pin us down

the spell we cast to quell the storm
the thoughts and prayers we try to send
the levee meant to break the tide
will only ever let it in

i love you i know what you’re going through
in time all things will pass away
it only lasts as long as you want it to
and surely there will come a day

faster than a bullet
leaping tall bounds
she pours over me
my heroine

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
