You still want some of this?
I have burnt
I subsist like a lone grave lily
The aching chants simmer under us in jagged notes of E minor
And while you appraise this as your happy
I’m in relentless combat with my twins, Sacramental and Scarlet
She tells me to be grateful for clumpy
I frustrate each letter of alpha
which never seem to rhyme
with trying to get through to you
I submit like a lone grave lily
