growing up

Beyond these walls

When I first woke
There was nothing but you within these walls
Nothing but you beyond
I was content
In your fairy tales
And promises of damnation
Should I fail.

But I was born to fail.

One night Eve offered me up her tempter
She asked me
“Do you want to touch him?
Do you want to taste sin?’
Oh yes,
I knew there was something beyond these walls
And this life was no longer for me.
