I Could've Killed Any One Else


Scribble my weakness

Throw away sorrow

The bowls are full of blood

Now that the dishes are done

I hesitated the thoughts I should have thunk

When I heard the music find it's funk

Leaving behind a trail of dust

Walking towards thee edge of the water

I drowned my pebble in the sea

Not knowing what was wrong with me

I smiled, chuckling, with glee

I was happy to pretend I was not dead

But then I realized

That that was impossible

Nobody would be convinced I was still alive

I will stay died

If I ran over a rat on a road

They would say he was killed by a ghost

Once more I am stuck

Not being able to climb the rope

I fall now, off the ladder of life

Being in limbo, for the rest of time

How do I shrink my mind now?

I've escaped my head for good

What a terrible brainless time

I am beginning to have

I should have took a bath

Not drown like that

Impossible notions

Scrape me like empty potions

How would you feel

If you ate what was in your refrigerator

Only to find you lost your heater?
