Story

Reading “Brokeback Mountain” was a transformative experience. I don’t believe I have ever seen the internal struggle against oneself so eloquently written and so accurately described. The only way I could come to terms with what I had read was to write my own piece about it.

Lyrics

Will you save me like you did before?
I will hold you to your word
but I died when I built the bridge between
the Virgin and the Whore.
 
Ennis come and look what I’ve done
They made a man of me today
they were singing “Hallelujah” as
they kicked dirt in my face
 
I would save you, if I could, I would
but I’m fettered by delusions of grandeur
and of perfect plans
Hobson’s knots have all held good
 
Dissatisfied with creation
I made a man out of clay
and I placed him in my garden
and I gave him your name
 
I call him Sacrifice
Ennis come and look what I’ve done…
 
Before you cut me out
I’d like to just remind you that
next time I’ll be coming after you
 
Ennis go and tell your father
an old dickless man was he
tell your mother and your sister too
what they do to boys like me
 
and tell them that I loved you
and tell them that I loved you
 
I will hold you to your word

Take Me With You
