Depravity

Science taught me to be careful of the beast

While math taught me it wouldn’t win.

We take the anchor and mark the wound

Yet somehow we end up the sin.

Settled in quite nicely to pain

Then took a walk for survival.

It wasn’t long before we were tired

Long before our arrival.

Soft music plays in the distance

Hearts warming from within;

I stand in trepidation,

For I don’t know where to begin.

Honor taught me to walk away

When I know I cannot trust,

Yet bodies melding in endless nights

Leave me wanting to lust.

Right before I get to the gate

I realize the gravity.

He’s standing there with bloodshot eyes

And all I see is depravity.

There is a small part of me

That wants to do nothing but run.

Then an even smaller part

Says to get my gun.
