i want to vacate earth without experiencing death
each friday sermon,
i yearn for a place that’s not even safe for god
in plain language,
my depression makes me tiptoe/
jump out of my body into heaven/ for a dire aid
but the atmosphere spins at an unprecedented
degree/ & an angry sun melts down my prayers
i possess all it takes to erect smiles on an orphan’s
a mother/ a father/ two loved ones & a lover;
yet i am still a virgin to the fragrance & taste
