If it was
Not for the simple fact
Of need
And love
And lust
In fact
Perhaps I’d be
A little more lax
But of course
There’s no chance of that

In stead ill scream
And cry
But because I I can
Is why I’m able to try

Perhaps ill let go
Of an endless night
And maybe one day
Proceed to the light

And the bruises
And scars will fade
Ill still laugh
And cry
But maybe
Ill trust again
