Red Eyes After Rending

Posted on July 17, 2006


all such pressing concern
buried in the hate and anger
so i will beg again
you are giving me several chances
even if i err

i am formed by your pity
and the strength of your head
so hold me together
my eyes are red
the water and salt remain

get me across
i hold to your belief
that we can fight the world
outside our door

there is dignity in you
i see myself alive
we dream our empire to fruition
the passion of our love
like soft slippers.
