If my body is a seed, bury me beneath the weeds Your hands were silver spades washing dirt across my face A decade of wooden beads draped along your collarbone I can't get to sleep Let alone all alone Pace out the path from the last step to the greenhouse Where we kept a bed of Nerium Oleander Tucked away I fed five crushed pedals to my best friend In the next life I apologized Violin under your chin We stood up to applaud the mess you're in A couple pints short of a blood show Let me know when to sew the seams And block the blood flow Everything's a sin if it's made to sound desirable I'm at home in my own skin Blistered up Burn every fold Your kiss is like a sermon I can't sit through It's comforting, but it won't do Chariots were burning down Blend into walls Foam at the mouth I let you be on your own To kill yourself by the river I let you be my misery My dying breath held deeper We blend into cloth Hold that thought while I break the tension rod Every thought worth repeating
