(To my loveliest friend, Molly… )
The Daze abandoned me like everyone else,
As I bear the burden of this Pen;
I don’t want to bleed like this.
Flashes of my rioting Past
Make my hysterical Sins long last;
I can’t dare to relive it.
The Presto pounds my brain with regulation –
They took away my Remedy of Elation;
I can feel the Corners reigniting.
These White Walls knot my veins,
Peircing my retina to feed their Saints;
No, I don’t serve ‘God’s Kins’.
Scratches dwell under my throat –
Let the symphonies gloat
As I fade to Nothing.
Agony oozes from the Melts
That my sinews dearly held;
I’d rather Devil orchestrate my Hearing.
Now, look at me:
In a Cage as abominable as my mind –
Just as devoid of Light –
I am left to beg and rot and drool.
So, for one last time:
Let Apathy sway through my veins –
Find Home in these nerves yet again –
As this Stray waltz its way
Down the road in this deplorable May;
Let Calcinogen tickle my brain
As the Sun beats down nonsensically, as always.
O’ For love, For life:
Shred my existence away,
So that the Memories Rest in Pieces;
Was never the Voice’s way.
