Section: The Pen


I ruled like the king
I fell like the pawn
I came with the dusk
And left with the dawn
I wrote a million pages of my pain
Like a sun rising up after the rain
I’ve looked into the past
I thought about the end
Love is life you give
Not a slow death you lend
Retracing all my steps but my shoe size changed
It’s strange you rearrange your plans
To stay the same

Just as life is shadowed by death
I’m dying to live
Until I run out of breath
Escape into my mind where thoughts often fade
The love I thought I had was never really made
Came back from where it sent me
Caught a cursed kiss
I felt so far from empty
I started to miss
The loneliness that always made me stop and think
The world might look a little better when I drink

Even the fool can see
The worst part of you is me
Even the fool can see
The worst part of you is me

I ruled like the king
I fell like the pawn
I left with the dusk
And came with the dawn
I wrote a thousand pages
Of how I won
Like a father raising up
His first born son
A past picture blue
A future flooded gray
A present paint by numbers
13 birds of prey
It’s a backwards, complicated way to live
The end you receive is the beginning you give
