I live in a body surrounded by thorns
They wrap around limbs and they sound a dull horn
wherever I stand and wherever I fall
they cut from under my skin and I crawl

I watch as a deer, looking into the light
Gets struck by an arrow, it must have struck right
her knees they have buckled and her heart it is racing
the herd it has left and the lions are pacing

I look in her eyes and I see all the signs
I see where her courage resides and resigns
Oh how helplessly she waits to die
her breathing it slows as she watches me walk on by

I ask you
Thorn in my side
The poison tip spreads but what does it hide?
is it too late or should I still try?

But something about about how I obey the moon
Is instructing my feet to turn back to her doom
And when I return I lay down by her side
It isn’t too late, finally I have realized
