chemical reasoning

from by Black Coral



you wade into the night,

blood flowers grow knee-high,

and you’re wishing that you climbed into that room where no one sees just how your feeling;

but now your tears are pure,

reach for that final cure,

which is love like a whore who can sing till it’s dawn and mistaken ways will wash out your core.

and now you lay awake,

your mind in disarray,

and the shining of the moon across the floor is the frost creeping into your squalor.

now let’s kneel down and pray,

like actors in a play,

and it’s fun to pretend that we’re rescued again until the
chains of life have you penned.
