thirst for exploration, wander my mind, your untamed woodland.
in a sea of raging devotion and cry in ire as I drift away.
on display, on my terms only.
Goddess in a temple, come forth and worship me.

a field of “I’d nevers,”
Blood, sweat, the dreams you covet
Give it all, so we can burn it and start again.
