Can’t keep these extremities from freezing
Fucked up on free will and drinking decay.
Selling my many moments for mere pennies on the dollar,
day after day.
Making a meager living off of my own suffering.
Give me that agony.
I revel in your unhappiness.
Drunk on misfortune and drinking your piss.
Watching my fortune unfold through a keyhole in the door.
I’d paint you a beautiful picture, if my hands weren’t so shaky.
Watching an electrical fire spread, I feel the earth beneath me quaking.
Everyone hates the sound of my voice, but I will scream you to sleep.
Better than blacking out again on my feet.
That darkness has ruled my life for far too long.
Crippling me into disrepair, filling my weary brain with fog.
I won’t let that blackness define me.
I won’t be overcome by the demons inside me.
I yearn so desperately to become this phoenix in my heart
