i said (a confession)

Posted to Utterances




I said
cut me up with roses.
i'll turn negatives into positives
and photos into technicolour
then back to black 'n white.
I said Your teeth are electric
and they make marks deeper than my skin
make my bones sing electric
and dance from within
with a rhythm like the shadows
that creep in from the corner,
And yes, I'm still a little sore
but come on, let's start another war.
You know I'll let you win.
You know I'll let you win.

I said i know i shouldn't dare
and you can't afford to care
but i've already been nailing you
right into my walls.
one more spike should do it.
Just hammerstroke right through it.
And maybe you didn't mean to,
but you've been driving a pencil point
straight into my chest
and... you could push a little harder.
(Yes that'd be alright with me)
And i'm thinking of your nails in my spine
and, well, that seems perfectly fine.
come and and spill the wine with me.
Don't be afraid to make me sore.
Let's start another war.
Just promise that you'll win.
Just promise that you'll win.
