Take a photo,

make me a picture.

dont make it kind!

don't check the lighting,

and forget about my "good side",

i want to see it in cinematic detail,

technicolour, and screaming the truth in stereo.

every line, every vein

every boil, bump and bruise!

i want to see every faded scar and fresh scratch,

i want to see the shadows of yesterday's pangs,

and the blood-shot glazed stare of tomorrows fears.

lay me bare,

open me up,

rattle me empty,

drink me dry,

eat every last crumb,

and when theres nothing left.... shoot
