Leaches And Worms

-

The leaches and worms

That crawl around on my skin

Thee agony of feeling them

__has trapped me in the Hell

____that I'm in

And when fire burns my flesh

Is this all that life "can be"?

My poor tortured brain

And this beatless heart that I have

Couldn't be anymore of a nightmare

It's top of the list of my fears

If the headlights go out

Am I going to drown

Having drove off the bridge

__into a river?

I'm not willing to see myself crash

But am I willing to try

__and do anything about it?

Only thee ink will survive

But that's alright

I don't need a cheese burger

__every single night
