As The Whore, So Am IMature

Just feelings on a page.

I want to love you

I want to give you all of me

All that I am

Have been

And can be

My heart breaks with each sin

Each heart-rendering act

It pushes us apa   rt

Only you can keep us together.

[u-you-s]

But I don't

I always turn

Chasing after other things that aren't you

That you hate even

As the dog returns to his vomit

So I return to my sin

As the whore, so am I.

Is there a place in your story for a whore?

One who sells herself away

Nay, gives her lovers gifts?

I remember when your heart

Was mine

You had sold me on your dreams

To walk in your steps

Now I want my own path

And I hate every minute of it.

Bring me back to my height

Walk me back up the mountain

Before I slipped

And fell so far

Turn me from whore to virgin

I know you can

Only you can

[u-you-s]

As the whore returns to her lovers, so am I

Yet you remain faithful.

As the dog returns to it's vomit, so am I

Yet you remain constant.

As the horse must be bridled, so am I

Yet you remain willing.

[u-you-s]

The End
