Instinct, I think

By dwells

I knocked down walls
To collapse the sky.
Poked a stick
In the all-seeing eye.
Then shot-gunned angels, on the fly,
Searching for the reasons: “Why?”

I heard my answers in your sighs
In gentle gaspings and “Oh mys!”
A secret from the inner thighs:
“We have to try – we have to try”.

And so we do;
Both you and I.

    Anything is better than a stick in the eye . This one transcend's to the Apple of your eye . I've gunned down Angels , and they shotgunned me . And I went to California to find myself . But home is always where you left it .

    Life is a funny thing, relationships and careers can be some of it’s cruel jokes. They can also be the most blissful things you’ll ever encounter. Just try to keep the balance dan, well written.

    A stick in the eye is the provocative lure of curiosity's desire... I feel the warmth as you light this soon raging fire :) Just like stepping in puddles after a fresh rain, you gotta poke it! --Great imagery, gave me a chuckle!
