I'm 21 and living my life
But it isn't the life for me
I have big decisions to make
but can't commit to making them

I feel like I'm already waiting for death to knock on my door

But instead it waits outside and seeps in from the crack

I make no long term plans because its stench will fill the house and suffocate me before long

But I can fake it, oh how I fake it..

No one even realizes

I fill the room with laughter and draw flirtatious looks

For a moment, I trick myself

It's just a act.. It's just life..

Nothing is permanent for me... nothing

Love fades, songs end, wounds heal

Nothing

Only the tattoos on my body

but they too will disappear

when I can no longer take the smell.
