Exceptional

Going to build a castle
on all the ruins they
left me in, a new
religion for everything
I stand against

Sadistic worship
paying more than
lip service, I'll take
the pleasure with
my pain

True love is exceptional,
two or three times 
a century,
they say,
free falling through 
the stratosphere,
elements colliding
in my headspace,
the catalyst 
a driving force,
a Titan,
a godsend 
falling from heaven
with a message:

He amuses her,
she is in love,
he is pure
and she is sure
this is nature's 
invention

Inspiration takes
a toll, every
pearl starts out
as a grain of sand
on the shore, 
an exacting price
for your soul;
nothing in the 
world is worth
more.
