see my room in the window, warped and doubled. i wish i were dead; sit on my bed to write a poem. sometimes i feel weighed down with gifts i never asked for. i'm sorry i hate them so; i'm trying to do what you would do. someday i'll be grateful (we all learn to be grateful) we learn not to run from things that only mean to kill us. we try not to run from things that really mean the most to us. we learn not to run from things that only mean the worst for us. we try not to run from things that really mean the very most
oh you love me, how you love me: i've heard it said, i've seen it written, i've heard it sung, but i could never believe that you loved me, not if i heard it from your own tongue. oh you love me, yes you love me and yes i know you've been trying to let me know but i've been wandering about beneath the shadow of a doubt and i'm scared it'll never let me go. i felt the heat of your fiery furnaces on my face since before i could speak. heard your voice in the storm, felt so hopeless and forlorn and in the stillness always drifted off to sleep. do you love me? do you love me? i'm sorry to have to ask you again. when i see your face, when i feel your embrace, i may ask you even then. i may ask you even then. (may i ask you even then?)
things that i looked forward to all came and went and left the world unmoved, so what do i do? and nothing i remember was as good as i remember it to be; how can that be? and so i will burden you with a hundred burning desires and stare down a crucifix, and throw myself on the fire, on the fire. and i know that you're coming back like a lightning bolt down the wire and i hope there'll be something left of me if you throw me on the fire, on the fire, on the fire, on the fire.
