Thyself

Side A

You, sanctuary of withering roses
Cathedral of injustice
You, ballad drenched in misery
Try to put on your smile

You, after scent of campfire
Cloud of billowing smoke, ignite
You, smoldering volcano
Nervous fireworks, breathe

You, mosaic of self-inflicted wounds
Playground of dancing ghosts
You, gripped by grief
Skirmish till you're barely alive

You, sinking ship

You, forgotten fossils
Death can't kill you

You, whoever you are
You, everything you didn't want to be
You, you're doing just fine
You, it all will be alright… 100 more words

Merriam-Websters on my phone
And since then
I've been defining things on my own… 165 more words
