i want to grab you by the rosary beads
pull you close to my face and let the proximity of our lips tempt you into committing the most egregious sin
let me corrupt you in ways that you couldn't imagine
because i think i could turn your mind to me
for i am but a simple devotee kneeling at the shrine of your feet
my god, my god, why have you abandoned me?
my screaming prayers fall on deaf ears
i'll keep one hand on my bible tonight and the other on my switchblade
we could be perfect one last night
and live like star-crossed lovers
we could live like star-crossed lovers.
