If I could

If I could
I would write myself to death
and cripple my self to a non-xeno image
I would create a world of no end 
and sink to depths unending

I would write a song
with no descenible ending
that just says I am who I am
when no one knows
who I am

I would cripple 
every word I hear
to define me,
and I would cry for no reason
at all

I would light a spark
and give it a cryptic name
and I would sigh 
with every breath given to me
in delight

If I could
I would lie and I would try
to sing every verse 
my heart demands of me
and still 
I would cry
if no one 
cries along with me

And if my brother
says to me in fear
that history bears no truth...
I would sing and cry along
I would sing and cry in sync
for no truth bears a better strength 
than my brother singing and crying along
