To Strengthen This Desire


To strengthen this desire

With such sinful thoughts

And walk solemnly

Into a lustful forest

And hear the birds chirping

And touch the leaves before

They fall, catch them all,

And smell the scent

And carve my name on a dying tree,

Destined to wither and fall,

And grab a pen

And write away

And grab an echo and sing,

And grab some dirt

And let it dry my tongue

And be the man

I once was

And be the man

I once was
