Cheap Is How I Feel

affliction stirs air in exhale  
hollow of life finds blood  
moonlight through broken windows
bleeds on tomorrow’s ashes
 
walls of memory flutter to dust  
honey traded for noise and fear
smiles deepen this illicit pain
travels inward to gaze at madness  
 
biting slick, bruised aches  
sweet and spicy on my palette  
dweller in secret shadows
madness sweeps your fragrance
 
draw a trace of love in the sky
breaths taken in a mirrored sea
sweet drips the blistering frost  
conversations in between

Such an awesome song. Is there such a thing as too much metaphor and imagery? I wish I’d written this puppy. Makes me want to spark up a lung-fucker and have a large glass of Crown Royal, neat. Fortunately we don’t do that kind of thing no more. It buuuuurrrns us precioussss! 🤣

Thanks Cowboy Junkies and YouTube for the video. Holy Dinah…even the band’s name is off the charts. 😏
