 - Declination

sleeping comfortably in a bed of thorns
the poison has you pacified 
fear and will is lost in the midst of teeming life

you drift deeper in the world that has risen around you 
amaurotic to the surrounding fire

hands reach to heal
mistaken for pulls and drags
mistaken for force and wrong
mistaken for violation and the crossing of yourself
the overgrowth decieves

the world will continue to spin
and you will burn

constantly finding a way to douse the blaze you suddenly awoke to
optimism will drain you for what you're worth
til only whats left is what a firestorm couldn't consume
