unhinge your jaw like the snake you came from
work your body until the victim is devoured
shed your skin like the serpent you hide from
split your tongue towards the people who hate you

there are two ways to go about killing a bird
a stone thrown in vein 
toward the feathers high above
a slow quiet existence, keep your distance

your feet above water
the embers burn warm
and the place in your heart that you had found sanctuary
never felt so far from home

dig in your nails
fight the skin with teeth
a blade against flesh, a drop to show power
become one with the feelings that you have burried deep

two eyes paired together
a color quiet breath taking
the feeling in my chest that reminds my very being
that even the holiest will lower to the weak.

Watch the waves crash upon the sand
My heart has always been in my hands
I possess the power to will it to break
To heal the wounds as the waves pull away.

Lips upon skin
Feet laced together
I forever want to awaken
By a storm coming closer.

The darkness that plays with my emotions
Cloud cover that never subsides
A stream of light, rarely peaking though
I bask in the freedom of my strides.

A walk on the cliffs of my dreamworld
I wander so far alone
And this time I am smiling
Because alone has never felt so much like home.
