I’m bound by a hellish glow of fire and ice
I’m freezing as I fall further to what’s not right
there takes a lot in me, to fight this being
the truth cannot hide, it’s always on my mind
fire in the way, I wish not to say:
“I’m breaking this gray light, deep within my soul
I’m pressured into growing cold, spitting vile words untold
don’t let my thoughts unfold.”
Alone I hide, what’s truly in me
secrets untold, I wish not to speak
stitch up my mouth and don’t let me bleed
just watch me gasp for the secrets sealed within me.
Murder me next to a full moon
watch as this red rose drips my blood
a touch of my thoughts on scrambled ink
this paper glows in the night,
telling my deepest secrets to statues of the dead
I only wish their voices would escape my head.
I’m branded by my own secrets
I’m scarred for my fate has yet to be sealed
dancing statues play a harp in this wooded field
I only hear my treasured soul screaming out fire and ice
my body weakening with this tomb I had built around me
I don’t belong in this sacred body.
