Surround yourself with beauty
Nothing will be spoiled.
Surround yourself with indignant pride
Everything suddenly becomes soiled.
Lift a ladder to a roof sometime
Gain access to the top
Throw yourself from it
Land with a flop.
Start a fire in the woods
Keep yourself nice and warm
Start yourself on fire though
You become a different form.
There is beauty within the man
The one she worships like a god
It’s a fruitful ambition to say the least
If only she weren’t flawed.
Tears come down like rain on her
When she thinks this may be true
You can nod your head and sigh all you want
You know inside she wants you.
