Rules in Exorcism

In the attic
Is a photo of you gathering dust
As many others accumulate
Around it

These are brighter
Technicolor
I may even be in them

I look like
I've never known you
That one impossible detail
A certain wrinkle on my head
The slight crease that curves itself
Over one of my eyes

Brings forth signs of the weight
That the photo still brings
And the healing from the sickness
That still simmers in the circumvent

Keeping by thе rules of exorcism
That I wrote for mysеlf
Specter jester magics have no audience here no more
Cursed relics in an ancient journal
And you no doubt still hiding yourself in there
Salt and slap the wound
Cast out in the flume
Rinse repeat in june
Maybe sooner

I turned you face down
And left my lot
Gave the space to those who needed sleep
And thankfully never saw you

Sometimes i will return
And sleep up here myself
Ill feel your silent scream

And remember
All you must be holding
All that may have spilt out
After i concurred what came before
Had been enough
All that may still be waiting

The longer you lie flat
The longer i can too
The longer you stay silent
The louder you become

Keeping by the rules of exorcism
That I wrote for myself
Specter jester magics have no audience here no more
Cursed relics in an ancient journal
And you no doubt still hiding yourself in there
Salt and slap the wound
Cast out in the flume
Rinse repeat in june
Maybe sooner

Ill leave the roof hatch open some nights
And wake up soaked with rain
Just to remind you of the dryness
You have come to realise

And that scream i hear from you
Sounds a lot like my own
I'm keeping myself busy
And it looks like you also might

I'm healing from your sickness
What are you healing from, though?

Keeping by the rules of exorcism
That I wrote for myself
Specter jester magics have no audience here no more
Cursed relics in an ancient journal
And you no doubt still hiding yourself in there
Salt and slap the wound
Cast out in the flume
Rinse repeat in june
Maybe sooner
