It Weighs As Much As It Can

-

Dripping

__as the laughter

____drips the milestone

______of life

Hanging like the water

__falling

____faster than the sky

I ate the bag of goodies!

I drank it off my plate!

I swallowed my cup of garbage!

Never be the same

Ruptured

Terrified

-

Slipping

__like the snake skin

____slamming breaks

______because the C.O.P.s

Wouldn't like to know

__I just ain't

____no one to understand

I feel like I've been feeling!

I wondered 'bout the meaning!

I know no kind of escape!

Trapped with who I am

Daily

Awaken

-

Blisters

__swollen thru me

____thru the likes

______of who I am

I pick up mostly

__on anything

____that I can hear alone

Must I grab a plate of laughter?!

Satan tortures me!

I wouldn't bet a dime!

'Cause "don't you know me?"
-

I aren't

__such the liar

____who can

______grin his teeth and laugh

I wallow

__plain and simple

____suffering the simple life

It isn't mine to live!

I'm gonna die this way in it!

If only I could kill you all!

But who will help me live?

Who will drink the water

__from my blood

Once it boils?

Who will eat the lions head off

__just to spit it down Satan's throat?

'Cause I sure won't
