Burgundy Wax

Blood and tears on my invisible hands
A rampage on angels
But my head is too deep in the sands
to know I'm in the wrong

Reminiscence of a monster
Fallen upon deaf ears
Just me and my fresher blood
Just me in my fresher years
All that I need is one more lonely sinner
to continue the candle with their burgundy wax


Realize
Realize I am cutting oxygen
Won't you come over and liven up my cuff
While the chains are so weak, I doubt that I'm enough
Oh, my
Oh, my
Imprisoned by myself
Condemned to die

Reminiscence of a monster
Fallen upon deaf ears
Just me and my fresher blood
Just me in my fresher years
All that I need is one more lonely sinner
to continue the candle with their burgundy wax

Reminiscence of a monster
Fallen upon deaf ears
Just me and my fresher blood
Just me in my fresher years
All that I need is one more lonely sinner
to continue the candle with their burgundy wax

The idea of burgundy wax is brillant! I'm a little confused how the speaker says he/she doesn't know what he/she is doing wrong yet feels the condemnation of sin. I could use a little help on my poems if you wouldn't mind checking them out  TeenInk.com/poetry/free_verse/article/678285/Under/
