Love to Hate
After you love to hate
When you awake
And no one is there.
Youíre all alone.
No one to share your home
Cold all around
Naked to the bone.
Cancer driven heart.
Blood Ė dry and bitter,
Iíll touch your scared face
Iíll touch your blemished body
Give you light in evil chasms
Casks of wine in the desert
Bless you when you hate me
Let you see through the eyes of Christ
When all youíve known were stupid sins
And Iíll make you a friend of the devil
When all you knew was the Holy Ghost
So youíll never be caught off guard Ė
Raped and robbed like my deaf affection.
After you love to hate my ancient name,
Imperious disposition & unassuming kingly aura -
Iíll gladly let you walk in my shoes for a mile or two Ė
Leave it all up to you and see how well you do with it.
Will the world be any better off w/ a Monday quarterback?
