Twilight Of Hanging Lips

I sulk here
Berate my
Self
Ask why this should happen
Why it always does
Where's the control
I'm supposed to have

The kind that lets me dream

My team of feelings
Need a break
From the lake of flame
They've drowned in

This light of mine
Frightened to burn out
Tries laying idle
An iniquity of being
Unchanged

Already, the rays rise
And I
With them
Because chlorophyll
Moves, is alive

Now I am
Green
Warm and ready
