-Oddly Loving (idol hands)-

Idle hands are bad enough
Though now it seems as idle love
Independantly decide
So sorry dear, and fake it shy
All without a saving Grace
Slowly, surely, then replaced
In dreams, in years, in absent sails
Flowing all from children's pails
Yawning and another yawn
Oddly loving that it's gone
Underneath the defiled one
A triumph here is less than none
Reason that, "More than I know"
Equals everything you didn't show
Again, a man, whose idle hands
Mean more than he now understands
Yet even though I'm not enough
The truth is cold and
Honest love.
