Burning Ground

I hoped you would hear my name
I hoped you would know I came
I hoped you would take the blame
And regret the lost opportunity
She called me and told me to come
My heartbeat, a heavy drum
Standing there, my mind went numb
But you don’t know what you do to me
Twelve months of this lonely thought
And this minute is all I got
Out of wishing and waiting a lot
For you and I to come around
I thought we built a stronger tower
But the floorboards have no power
So don’t blame me if I cower
‘Cause I can’t stand on burning ground

Hi! I'm Cona Rose, a recent college graduate and a girl who loves philosophy, theology, and great books. My mind is a funny place - somehow both chaotic and systematic. I take a long time to process my thoughts, and I can't handle too many ideas at once. For all these reasons, I made this place for my mind to let out some energy and to try to better organize everything inside it. If anyone else finds entertainment in or learns from this content in any way, I'll consider that the icing on the cake!
