AshCraft

I close my eyes.

Unclench my teeth.

Exhale my pain.

And fall to sleep…

But in this flesh,

There burns a flame…

It tastes of death.

It tastes of me…

But it’s mine to have and hold.

Yeah, it’s mine to bend or fold…

So now, there’s nobody left in the world.

When I close my eyes

I can hear you breathe.

When you come to mind,

I’m always dead asleep.

And this world is mine,

To craft and keep,

But it’s yours to rule…

From up under me.

But it’s mine to twist and shape.

Yeah, it’s mine to disintegrate…

And now, there’s nobody left in the world.

When I close my eyes,

I can hear the screams.

If you cross my mind,

You’ll be on your knees…

And when you cry

Between your prayers…

Now there’s somebody listening who cares.

I’ll close my eyes.

Unclench my teeth.

Exhale my pain,

And fall to sleep.
