The Battle For Words
We are twisted
If only it could be one way, then we could rest
If only they could be one way, then I would understand.
The battle for language
It wraps me in its wheel, taking me, taking me
Not, I am not your lover
It does not ask if I can breathe
There is no consent
I am a body, plunging to earth, into the earth
I see my eyes spinning, eyes spinning
The battle for words, it comes through me and out.
If only there was one way to be, then I could know.
If only there was the word, the word, I search for the word. What is this?
What are you?
Who are we together?
I fight for the answer
There Is no answer
The battle for the words,
Take me take me. I am your slave.
Rape me with your contortions and I’ll search the world-grasping for the one thing- only one thing.
The battle for words, of words.
I struggle for the ways to be. Definition, oh it would feel so fucking good. If only I could define this, set it straight, keep it there for all eternity, there are plenty of me- those who would enjoy it. oh predictability, you are my lover.
Take me, take me. There is no asking. Born to struggle in this word game.
My eyes spin.
I see you in my eyes, you are me as she is me as we are all together.
Just as he said- they said - or me, we have no words for this and I am drawn into the pile of shit that would have us all be defined. Oh, it would feel good on that corner of the white hospital shelf, but this is gritty and dark and the fight takes my heart- beating- it feels so good and hot tight in this hand.
This is the battle for words and we are drawn down in its tight embrace. Give a kiss, won’t you love?
Give a kiss, for this is the battle.
