ILLUMINATION

A Poem Consisting Entirely of Indie/Rock lyrics #4

Let's have it right
Sunset’s been a freak show
Honey, when you kill the lights
I’ve seen it all go, come back around
And I’m shakin’ like a leaf
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
And why would you believe you could control how you’re perceived
A simple mistake starts the hardest time

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
I don’t have to sell my soul
The fish are belly up
January made me shiver
And when you’re lost I feel it too
The common goal
We shared the same bus to the school they taught art
Where’s the love song to set us free?
