Too many times I've stood before a mirror
And gazed into Eyes I did not recognize as my own
Evil eyes. Angry eyes. Eyes full of hatred.
The dark and the light collide into one space
As I long to bring myself into the existence I know
Wholeness makes my heart beat fast;
Adventure within my soul, yet--
The elation of airiness has me float like a marshamallow
Beyond this world and back
Light as a feather, stiff as a board.
It's not the temptation I shall fear,
But its leader that I follow--
The devil masquerading as my friend.
Once you spew the fires of evil
You cannot take it back
While others sign the dotted line
And seek comfort in its warmth,
I've seen the gates of hell
And run away from its flames
No longer will I fall into temptation
For I don't allow myself to sin
By starving my bones of evils I perceive
Skin is all I have.
