Look at the Light


I say these days I'm broken
Hard as earth
Frozen still like ice collecting on my car
A perfect broken image
Corrupted
Fractured
And promised to me
The one who knew what to feel
And felt the world
Ablaze
In a room I said
'I guess you understand we had no chance.'
I'm tired
Don't we all just die?
Look at the light
Look at the light and tell me
Does it hurt you like it hurt me?

Salve magna parens frugum Saturnia tellus,
Magna virûm! tibi res antiquæ laudis et artis
