“Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.”
― Cassandra Clare

My bones cry out to you
They yearn for something more
My heart it burns within me
Scorching all that I adore
I am bound
In my soul is thirst for love
Nothing short of you will quench
Oh how I hate who I am
And that self adoring stench
I am bound
Worldly goods will never fill
They push the dead away from view
But the flesh still rots and fills my heart
Taking all that's love and new
I am bound
But when he finds me blind and shackled
He does not scorn my condemning vice
Instead he breaks my chains
And restores my sight without a price
I am free
