The Shadows

I thought I was ready
To heed the call
But I wasn’t close at all
My gilded heart, a deceiving shell of gold
You know the truth: it is only flesh and sorrow.

My blood still talks
Your beats still bleed
No one to blame but sincerity

I lost my way,
I saw it on your lips, and chose instead to crawl.
I thought I was ready,
But I fell on my knees
Into the beauty of it all.
