Both Sinner and Saint

pinterest-25
People have always looked at me
 
And seen what they wanted
In seeing the fantasy that was my reflection
 
That is my mirror, making you a believer
 
In a lie, in a perfectly crafted farce
I weep, I bleed, you believe this ancient art
 
Of pretending to be something else
 
People have always tried to fit in, I’m the same
People always failed to fit in, I’m the same
 
But different, because I quit
 
You can’t come to grips with the reality
That I’m brooding in demons and darkness
 
You’re offended that I love it
 
You’re bewildered by my comfort in the grey
Yes, I see the light. Yes, I know the way
 
Sometimes, I can’t rise to it
 
The murder of caskets trapping my feet
The patter of blood stifles heartbeats
 
And the song of death tastes so sweet
 
Yes, I relish in the pain of man!
I bask in light shining through cracked skulls!
 
Because I am darkness and light
 
Because I am sinner and saint
Because I live in heaven but deserve hell
 
At the same time and place
