take more than you need
torn away from the one thing i can rely on.
beaten down to the core.
just as long as there’s enough to go around.
take more than you need.
take enough to hollow me out.
and you give,
and you give
till there’s nothing left to give
just a hole and the sin of the charitable
i’ve been around long enough to remember
why i don’t give anymore.
now wave goodbye
and pray for peace of mind.
