Forgive the pin my hand was giving a flower
Upside down
So here extends the path to my heart

I make sense of skin
And it is light like sun
The pin my hand was giving a flower

The door twists like a cloak
And collapses like a hinge
So here extends the path to my heart

The pin is the path of the hinge
The pin
The pin my hand was giving a flower

The door collapses all the light in the room
And the room is a pin
So extends the path to my heart

I filled the room the door collapsed the door with a hinge
And the light with the sun like a flower
The pin my hand was giving a flower
So here extends the path to my heart
