I find my will in bottles of wine sometimes
And I don't jump in
I'd never have the courage to
peel off my own skin
to show you the clusters of
star dust, earth, water and hell
I've collected in the holes of my chest
over the years
and I fear that I'd trip if I fall
not for the scars but
the callouses I'll have to pumice
from my heart if we got too far
and you changed your mind.
So I changed mine.
