I Still Feel

Like poison to red lips

Draw out my last breath

But only for this pain

I know I can still feel

Like a penny in my pocket

Discard my earnest efforts

Hope has left me here

Pressed down til I’m alone

Like a pedal from a rose

Crash down on my ambitions

Laughing at my heartache

I know I can still feel

Like the pounding of a stone

Stop my hands from reaching

Further than my destiny

Lack is all I own

Like a pigeon on a ledge

Jump my past behind me

Freedom through my heart

I know I can still feel
