Threw a rock into the river of silence,
When a storm didn’t pass.
Took the force of dignity to a new level
When I told him to kiss my ass.
Worried when I was told the truth
That it was a lie instead.
Stole what I could of integrity
Though dying, wouldn’t take a piece of bread.
Stood in the middle of rain
Screaming for salvation.
When it didn’t come to me immediately
I gave into temptation.
Kicked a stone and hurt my foot
Then cussed the nearest stranger.
Fortified walls to protect my heart
But don’t worry, it was never in danger.
Held divinity between sullen teeth
Bit a rabid dog.
Knew it wasn’t going to last
And I fucking hate the fog.
The only reason I stay somewhat sane
On the day that man died,
Was I thought for a moment he loved me
Because of the fact that he lied.
