Deep Thought

"A man would do nothing, if he waited until he could do it so well that no one would find fault with what he has done"

You dont know me

You dont know me.

I'd stand in front of the crossbow
i'd bleed for you.
My hands wont shiver
and words will be over.

You dont know me.

I'd drown in the ocean for you
Yes, I know swimming though.
Weightless body will float
while it awaits for your boat.

You dont know me.

I walk the barren lands
unknown to any man.
Would you come to the rescue?
when you hear I am dead?

You dont know me.

Look at me with the corner of your eyes,
I'll burn with your single sight.
My flesh flying like burning paper
covering the entire sky.

Dont you know me?
Dont you know me by now?

    1. Yes sure. Since you've asked I guess what was in my head were some left out desires which are waiting to be achieved but for some reasons me and them are unable to meet (for now). And the words followed thereafter.
      Thank you for commenting!
