Wagging Tongues

from Inner Effigy by Bodhi Jar



Wash my name from your tongue
Grip the reigns lift them up
Carve out your trench in
The skin of someone's chest
I didn't feel a thing
What else did you expect
Rolling eyes light a cigarette
Slipped away
How quickly we forget

Listen close when time is speaking
Words fade away
If I hope for them to reach me
It gets lost in the air between

Pull the straw then repent
Hang from words by the neck this
Cocoon gave birth to someone else
Turn away how quickly we forget

Listen close when time is speaking
Words fade away
I didn't feel a thing
What did you expect

Longer than I care to know but I could never tell
Hollow view and cutting through the silence as they fall from wagging tongues
Words escape the meaning fades and leaves the void that it creates
The darkness swallows me
What have I become

Not standing like before
I was waiting for you
I won't anymore
Carry on breathing this air that's so impure
But I love to suffer
Still you’re keeping score

Victory is yours
