Echoes of Lust

By Laura Dee Battle
April 25, 2015

Ready my heart for the rise of it all
Embrace the echoes as everyone falls
Settle the pettiness poisoning you
Take a brave leap into the darkness you knew

These are the scores which remain at a stall
Steady she goes as we tear down the wall
Leave it behind; rusted shackles of lust
Admit it; this life is the prison in us

Must I digress when I'm speaking my mind?
Always a war of the bittersweet kind
Cause we win and we lose, or nothing at all
Put down that sharp needle; you'll never be tall

You'll never feel strong or enough to be judged
This isn't a nudge and it isn't a grudge
I gained everything that I wanted to find
It all left me broken and trapped in my mind

So I'm shoving you; can you please lead the way?
I fell into lies and the greed yesterday
Desparately searching for a haven from the light
Only to find my devil awake in the night

I'm falling away from their outstretched fingertips
Turning my cheek when they go for a kiss
I'll never be wealthy as I wanted to be
I'll stay in the dark till the day I can see
