Falling

I’m peeling them back these days
past the cuticle
to the pink shiny flesh beneath
begging them to become something more
then I have shown them.

I’m wearing them through to the soles anymore
expecting more out of them
then I’ve ever given myself
winding up sore from mental sodomy
the metallic after taste tainting my tongue

I could draw you a picture
perhaps I could even write a book
but in the end,
it’d save you no more
than it saved me

However I’m still smiling
my eyes back-lit with assumption
that’s doomed to prove true
while your caught up in your success
the seed will take root

I’ll root for you
I’ll even warn you now and then
but I refuse to become a martyr
for a cause
that’s already lost.
