My Mistake (An ode to fear)

You’re the vast sea to the island,
You’re the full moon and the beast out in the twilight
I see you waiting
And I feel you anticipating my mistake.

Fuck these vain words, half expressions
Unconcerned with my lack of discretion
I see you there
And I feel no reason to fear you…

Was I supposed to suffer for you?

You’re the red glow of the demon
You’re the soft kill and the shot fired with no reason
I see you take aim
And I feel no pain

Was I supposed to suffer for you?
Was I born just to be martyred in your name?

My mistake.
