the lazarus effect

explosive color
gorgeous noise
voices calling
step up! step up!

Life did not stop
while you were gone
were hiding

it’s too much, too much
it’s overwhelming
it’s glorious
give me more

i’ve been fasting
so feed me
get me drunk
let me taste the delights
and the tragedies

i stumbled out
blinking at the light

in two breaths
the life i had left in limbo
opting for a cave
came blaring back

it is much too much
but give me more
