You take me into dark places
Muddy swamps infested with memories and toads
Tight burrows dug by my most shameful sorrows
From a branch hangs a bloodthirsty nymph
“Come closer stranger, give me a sip
Your sanity for the passage to the other side”
No, I don’t wanna go, let’s turn around
Let’s blissfully float on the surface of my mind
Undisturbed, unaware, undead.
Yet you take my hand and lead me in
Deeper into my terrifying head
What do you want from me?
Eat my soul? Drink my brain?
Why are you taking me there?
“Trust me,” you bless my eyelids with a kiss
Trust? A blinding sweetness of the morning mist
When love still tasted like wild berries and gummy bears
When a brush of fingers caused a gasp for air
When together meant forever and with nobody else
Trust! Slayed my forearms with a piece of glass
Found on the ground where he left me to die
No trust for me, man, I prefer to eat dirt.
“Silly girl,” you embrace my trembling waist
We descend into darkness calling out my name
The skeleton woman’s breath caresses my neck
Her bony fingers sink into my breast
The tower of ego falls apart, just like that
A thousand screaming heartbreaks crack the sky
A thousand broken promises, a thousand hopes in shreds
How can I trust you if I have no faith?
How can I love you if I have no heart?
“Tsss,” you say, “don’t look back”
We move further than I’ve ever let anyone in
Monsters lurk at us from behind the trees
Foam and gore drip down their yellow teeth
You softly wipe away their angry tears
We’re almost there, you open the gate
A ray of light pierces through my brain
A cloud of butterflies burst out of my chest
I fall to my knees, humbled by eternity
If it’s not madness, then it is death
If it’s not death, then it is… what?
It is love, babe, it is LOVE
The greatest, the saintest, henosis of souls
The blood of God, the core of existence
From the depths of bullshit and mental resistance
Cuts through illusion like a cosmic diamond
Untouched, immortal, and crystal-clear
Breaks into pieces this fucking fear!
You take me into light places
Meadows of wild berries and stardust trapped between our breaths
Where together means forever and with nobody else
I will travel with you till the edge of the universe!
In the spacecraft of your arms I’ve finally found
A man of honor, courage, and candor
From now on, for better or worse
Home has only one name—.
