i am uncaught and still swimming alone in the lake, shimmering under a moon made in anger and haste, like a penny out of reach in the subway grating. i am the hero to you, you are the villain to me. i jumped a building or two to write a love story. i've got a growing heap of crosses and burdens. i've lost heart to shoulder; simply no strength left to lift. i don't know what i'd be without the Lord's forgiveness brushing these adulterous lips. ignorance is bliss: cherish it. you can only move as fast as who's in front of you. a laundry list of problems doesn't make you interesting and never getting help doesn't make you brave. not listening to reason doesn't mean you have faith; you're just cutting off your nose to spite your face.
