Jennie Sparrow (110877 / Tahlequah, OK)
Heaven on my skin,
Hell in their eyes,
Everything we are within,
No need to improvise.
Unlocking the mysteries of the world,
Only to doubt its true worth.
Perpetuating a myth of disaster,
To find nothing there after.
Feeling everything that hurts,
Of messages from another universe.
When your words get into the way of who I want to be,
Until all the secrets are then cast into the deepest sea.
