my sadness runs deep
reaching and filling me like no other

itís become a habit i canít quit
like the Catholic church
that has screwed me
since i was a jelly smudged girl
racing between the pews
tripping and tumbling
an innocent bouncing on Jesusí lap
knowing truths but comforted by lies

my sorrow keeps me warm
licking me through the blinds
hugging me in the shower
itís even in my cup of tea
burning the roof of my mouth
making sure itís the only taste
iíll ever know
