WLTM Vulnerable Woman (The Man in Black, Still Life and Drunken Bruises)

August 5, 2013


Mother Mary, Mother Mild.
If I can’t be loved.
Let me be reviled.
Not this nothing.
Not this meekness.
Not this terrifying weakness.

Let me lose and leave behind.
Upon a cross, my useless manners.
These songs of sodden courage.
Loss is cruel but hope is crueler.
And let those last words echo sooner.
Spoken by your pinioned child.
“They know not what they do”.
In the dusty rooms of virgin’s minds.
That they might be blind and dull and happy.
No more need.
Schizoid fucking embolism.
No more waiting.
No more birdsong in the prison.
No more days to waste.
And no more dreams to chase.
No more cards to stamp.
Here’s your shovel and here’s your lamp.
Let’s get this bastard risen!
