It's so damn safe
in your little cocoon
you make your rules
and demand
they be followed

I won't follow

I'll hide my core
and smile my smile
if ever I should chance
to look that deeply
into your sightless eyes
I can't believe
your rationale
can't fathom
your faithful ideas

Can't fathom myself
(what was I thinking?)

I don't think
you know yourself
if ever you did
you'd have no ignorance
to hide behind
you're too damn safe
inside your chrysaliss
too damn quiet
too forgiven

Severn,
Your climbing up a cynical pinnacle.
And your doing a good job.

Wasn't sure how this one would be taken - it's a little different from my usual! Thankyou all!
Pff - yep, gotta have guts!

The word 'faithful' is the operative word here!
