mask of silence

April 20, 2013

hear the words i never speak
sounds that come from way down deep

i must feel like i’m a stupid guy
entranced in idealizing you so high

the wound you gave me
it was not ordinary

it became like a festering sore in me

i promised you would be my friend
i had no idea you wanted this to end

you just laughed at me
and never took me seriously

now you bring before your courts
the sentence to hang me in the ports

so i’d deliver a guilty plea

i want to die, i want to disappear
from this cruel world so unclear

or just be in a pasture of green grass
bereft of insanity and actions crass

the sorry you would hear from me
is “sorry for this idolatry”

hear the words i never speak
sounds that come from way down deep

i must feel like i’m a stupid guy
i must be sinking into the sky
