I have succeeded
and achieved my apogee
of emotional sobriety
All smiles for all the while,
Won't you let me make you laugh?
Throwing away all those
forged TV romances has
broken the strings of the cross
You can see it there, it's lying in the dirt.
Let's break it apart and make a fire.
My concept of love has exploded
I see love in everything; what
I had twisting inside of me
was a very nasty serpent; not love.
True love won't suffocate you like
some terrible disease; true love is
conversation marred with wit
True love is what I've been given
by all those I've been blessed to meet.
