Writing should be a pouring out like rain drops fall from the sky.
So why is writing so hard?
Why do I try?

Testifying your love (again and again) screaming it aloud.
Only inerrant truth is dense enough to fall from clouds.
Lies are light and loosely held, at least for me, I hope for you.
But appear to hang low in the sky, being seen and seemingly true.

You must look up to see the clouds, which give us the rain,
But we are used to searching blinding in mists, yielding only pain.

We don’t look up, we can’t anyways.
The fog doesn’t allow the sane.
Like glaring through a window-pane as condensation has hidden the plain.

You scrutinize too much the world in which you flirt.
The truth that falls from the sky is on deaf ears and strikes the dirt.
You’re like the church Christ saved—a whore,
Constantly lifting your skirt at every opportunity (any sin you see).
How much is enough?
When will you come back to me?

Have you had you’re fill?
I’m trying to kill the thing that is making you miserable.
