I’m feeling undeniably crazy and yet positively lazy

My mind is extremely mixed up and hazy

 

My sense of humour is still a bit cheeky and maybe a little sneaky

 Although I’m looking withdrawn, pale and peaky

 

I’m so weak and frightened that my fears have become intensely heightened  

But for some reason I’m strangely enlightened

 

My fear is so uncontrollably clear

 Addictive personality now craving and drinking too much beer

 

This guilt and hurtful loss of control grips and twists my fateful soul

This burden is starting to take its toll

 

 Self hate is my never ending fate

Leaving me in a messed up surreal state

 

My violent and manic rage is trapped in a rusty animal cage

Like a favourite book with a thoughtless ripped out page

 

Loneliness turns me to thoughts of crime

But I must see sense and tow the line or I’ll be doing long and lonely prison time

 

My deep dark destructive depression, Is an addictive unwanted obsession

 Leading me astray to learn another painful lesson
