I once learned to love the world
or to point, a single one
capital L with all the bows
guarantees heard in my head
to this piper I walked the line
while the world was found deaf
the end result was too much
in between the wrong and the right
crucified in Hell’s hot fire
love betrayed me at long last
delivering nothing in its taunts
I’ll forget to now survive.
