kickflip into my heart

kickflip into my heart
kiss the gap between us
you are so brave
you are an angel
sent from heaven to shred
to enlighten us all on earth
a blessing in a double heelflip
an ollie down 25 stairs

sugar rush

I ate everything
such a wicked feeling
the sugar rush
the bloat
I took everything
their love
their trust
their nourishment
and i became a different person no longer below them
in my theft laid the secret of a safe return
what I took made me singularly peaceful

show you the ropes

a love for all mankind
that suffered as it was hidden
that was pushed away by day to day ruins
that was built on love and buried in the backyard
butchered
