Not the same

If you are the idol

On a high pedestal

I can bow down

And kneel and pray

I can revere

From a distance

I do not wish

To stand up or stay

If you are a stranger

Walking along

I can smile

And not fray

I do not wish

To stop or stay

If you are the God

And I the fallen angel

I remain the devil

In my own way

I do not wish

To rise or stay

If you are the sun

And I the ashes

I can scatter

My being away

I do not wish

To be whole and stay

If you are the wine seller

And I the drunk

Pour me a cup

And look away

I do not wish

To be seen or stay

Stay up there

So I may look up

For it is simpler

To adore

And want

Nothing more

For if you came down

And we were the same

My drunken words

Might give me away

Pay me no notice

Give me no thought

Whirling in

My drunken trance

I remain unseen

Let me stay
