I was, Now I Am

Bright lights but a shadow heart 

Real Words but a hurtful tougue

Persuasive eyes but different color pupils 

Loving songs with broken guitar strings 

Wearing a coat full people and a hat full of thieves

Soul like ravens but have the intentions like christian crusaders 

Rejecting you to be with me 

Counting numbers from 4 to 10 and leaving behind 1,2, and 3

Who are you to save a neck of rods when im still collecting metal 

Troubled with words but unique with poison

Striked me down with open knowledge then kissed me with working magic

Made with anger and killed by love

Pulled out by a finger and sheltered by its hand 

Asked for it  but was given Me

Smiled and now Smiling
