Saint (A Monster Like Me).

Saint (A Monster Like Me).

A Poem by Mel <3
"

When someone has been awful to a friend and they didn't mean it, what should they do? Well, this woman sings...

"
Where do the sinners walk
When they feel they cannot be forgiven?
How do those who've done wrong
Recover from the flames of judgment?

Does the tornado howl for me?
Is it my time to suffer and bleed?
I curse the days I've ever been bad
And so I'm trying, trying to see...

...If you'll accept my apology?

We all have those days
Unaware that we've done wrong
Until it's too late, until there's no return
It certainly feels like the end of the world

Everything is falling out of balance
There's chaos and destruction everywhere
I want to find the way out of the dark
Yet as of right now, there's no escape

...Come forth and punish me for my crimes.

This cannot be
What horrid sin have I committed now?
I stand alone with this one song
Singing until I can sing no more

My heart longs for those I love
For I am nothing without them
So I summon this apologetic dove
To fly out to the cracking stems...

...Please forgive me, my saint.

So here I am, trapped in isolation
My only possessions a shameful heart
A soul captured in the cold of space
And a body with no meaning

In emotional turmoil, humans speak
With the foulest, blackest tongues
I am no exception
In fact, I am probably the worst...

...Will my life end up self-destructing?
...I never meant to hurt you, darling.

This cannot be
What horrid sin have I committed now?
I stand alone with this one song
Singing until I can sing no more

My heart longs for those I love
For I am nothing without them
So I summon this apologetic dove
To fly out to the cracking stems...

...Please forgive me, my saint.

Before me, I see a light shining
Glowing with all its worth
Although I am extending my hand
It seems like it's too far away

Is the light pulling you away from me?
Does it punish me for my tainted ways?
My fingers are so close, I can feel the warmth
But then I pause in question...

...Do I deserve you?
...Do I...?

This cannot be
What horrid sin have I committed now?
I stand alone with this one song
Singing until I can sing no more

My heart longs for those I love
For I am nothing without them
So I summon this apologetic dove
To fly out to the cracking stems...

...Please forgive me, my saint.

Darling saint, loving saint
Are you willing to forgive
A monster like me...?

Author's Note

Mel <3
So... I decided to write a follow-up song to "Am I Gonna Die?" because I've done something terribly wrong. I'm not sure if I'm going to be forgiven, let alone acknowledged, because I honestly don't deserve this friend's mercy.

No, not a friend. A saint. Just like the lyrics describe...

For all the horrible things I've wrought, I am truly sorry.
