Metempsychosis

It hurt…………………. (so much)
To be…………………… (born again).
In your womb ……………..(my mother)
I was an angel…………… (I’m sorry).
Until exposure…………….(the light).
And I crawled……………..(burning my flesh);
And I consorted……………(cover me with dirt).
With the unclean…………. (wash me away).
Do you still love me?…….. (my mother)
Will you hold me?………… (sing me a lullaby).
But I’m crying ……………(of my death).
You don’t recognize me now… (my rebirth).
I’m just a worm …………..(back into the dirt).
I will crawl away …………(existing).

I count to three       Moon shaking in my vision
Blink my eyes       Dancing in circles
Bare my teeth       Hungry for shadows
