can you help this life
a strangled by ???
from difference

the window seat has become
an unreflected form of
blind forgiveness

i know you should be hearing this in person
but i'm not at home
and you're not here
so patiently i wait here by the phone
for your call

i fought life
and i cannot lie
i wish a ??? could cauterize
a self inflicted open wound
i know how to guess again
you say that's life
you say that's life

all i know
all i know is i'm hopeless
unless i am ripping for you
cause the life that you give me is wholesome
every day
i want to
renew, renew, renew
