Poet Or Sinner

You knew me when I built monsters
Before the days when you bled
You knew me when I surrendered
To the nightmares in my head

You were just a child
Nothing’s ever changed
I see the child in you
Like some eternal flame

Come take my hand
Share my lonely dinner
Tell me if you think
I’m a poet or sinner

Poet or sinner
Tell me what I am
Poet or sinner
Be the angel who can

Raise the dead
While marshmallow dreams
Drown in the tide

Change my world
With the taste of ruin
Flowing from my eyes

Turn back time
Soaked in bubbles
Of our reckless lives

Poet or sinner?
Don’t know what I am

You knew me when I fought demons
In your tangled hair
You knew me when I marked you
With my stain of despair

You were just a child
Nothing’s ever changed
I see the child in you
Like some eternal flame

All I know
I’ll love you in shadows
Till the sun disappears

All I know
I’ll love you in shadows
Till His Light reappears

Poet or sinner?
Don’t know what I am

You are both, we have to be human to be poets and humans without sin, are angels and ours fly in poetic sublime time. A fine work of pure poetic art. Thank you for sharing this treasure. Be who you are and I feel sure, your marshmallow dreams will sustain you and your child at heart muse till His Light reappears. Smiling at you Tai
