"The Dark Wolrd"


My brain is pissed off

At the sounds of life

Shattered like a dream

I'm stuck

__and I cry

Powerless freedom

Hangs down to die

My ended endeavor has been

__ripped to shreds

____like a mass of quarrels

______being bought off

________and termed

__________like a freak accident

I know why my mind keeps wandering

But I don't stop it

I wouldn't even care to

By the looks of Hell burning

__around me

I think fire is gonna consuming me

And when my tomorrows are gone

Who can be my number one?

Rivers of shame

__strike me like a guilt

It's my fault

That I'm ill

And by all the reasons

__I'm asking for

The blank sky cares not for

Any time to pass

Any blood to shed

And the wrinkles in my head

Show me I'm dead

But by looking sick

I can feel the itch


Like it was on my back

As if some world I have to carry around

That I'm out my mind to think

I could be a part of

Weightless drugs, I drop on my tongue

I medicate the madness

As I'm left to be as bold

__as a live piece of stake

Unbearably, I walk

Without talking, and bleed out

The nothingness
