It’s a heavy twist of fate
With a little magic on the side
We’d like to stay we stayed in the middle
But honestly, we never even tried.
Sex takes command some nights
We spend hours talking about that
Then something seemingly little
Causes us to spat.
Yet we always whisper in darkness
He doesn’t know I’ve strayed
In spite of all our retention
I was never able to get laid.
Sometimes we hang on too tightly
Sometimes we just let go
We wane and ebb just like the sea
It wasn’t our most spectacular show.
In a strange twist of fate in my life
A season forgot to transition
Sent honor and dignity home one night
Without an honorable mention.
I pointed my finger to the sky
Told him we all hated creation
The sanctity of what stood before us
Wasn’t worthy of our damnation.
Yet flowers grew in the midst of winter
We stood watching them break through
Nobody wanted to stay too long
As my disdain for men grew.
One captured my attention
He wasn’t honest, it was a lie
A man too weak to bear his burden
A man too withered to try.
A ring fell off his hand one day
Onto a plate he made
She asked him if he dared his luck
Or if he wanted to die by the blade.
Tirades gain us knowledge
What is in a persons heart
What ends as a horrible lesson
Begins as a glorious start.
