Little As None

And I wish you were this little.

Little as an ant.

Little as patience.

Little as me.

So that I can keep you here.

In my pocket.

In my head.

In my heart.

I wish you were this little.

So little.

To see.

To hear.

To feel.

So that I can carry you around.

Show you to no one.

Share you to no one.

So be no one.

Then be gone.

For you are as little as none.

 

Teach Me

Teach me.

The ways of life.

The edges of these knives.

Teach me.

The ways to lie.

To help me get by.

Teach me.

The ways to be.

To set myself free.

Teach me.

The ways to live.

To help me believe.

Teach me.

The ways to see.

To find the real me.

Teach me.

Teach me.

Teach me.

That is the only way.

For you,

and for me.
