Get, Got, Gotten.


Butter is lightning on the toast
So smooth and slick,-eyes couldn’t see
I, my wooden box afloat
And your steel miles beneath the sea
I’m yellow under the sun
My intentions melt to paste
That river doesn’t quench my thirst
Because the water runs in place
I’m a lover of your wings
I shot you down from the sky
You thought pain was a form of love
But the truth made your bruises cry
Now that you realize the truth
You and all your wounds are running
You may know my every move
But you cannot see me coming
I drank from your tainted liquid
I licked clean your wretched plate
You’re decomposing in my spit
Your life is frozen on my face
I tore you down from the sky
I was strong and I was bold
In the ocean I was found
Bleeding out your chemicals.

I can't explain exactly, there's just a sort of natural way you put your words that's kind of aloof and humorous...

I like this poem's morbidness and depth and darkness, and also it's impenetrable sense of humor.

really? i thought thats what would throw people off. do you get the 3rd and 4th lines. It's not just conspicuous rhyme. every line means something. do you really understand this or do you just like it?
