The Inverse of Never (M11)

from Helices by Jenny Katz

/

lyrics

You are the place where I begin
I step into your art and rise again
Your teeth against my skin like knives
You’re drawing blood with every line
This is how we come alive

You are the song within the flames
You are the bell that rings my real name
I look behind your voice and I see
choices that could change my life forever —
the inverse of never

We are the fettered and the free,
your provocation has been spinning me
The prism turns and in its facets,
I become another form of me,
I can choose which me to be

you’ve twisted everything I thought I was
everything I’m frightened of
you’re pushing every boundary, baby —
this splitting skin is painful
feels a lot like dying
And yet I’m finding
that my doubts can be the fuel
Yes I’m finding
I’m allowed to play the fool
And I’m unwinding
into iridescent ribbons of forever —
the inverse of never

You are the place where I begin
I step into your art and rise again
You’re drawing blood with every line
Now’s the only time we live forever
The inverse of never
