The humour of life burning down beneath my skin
The blood boils – it knows no forgiveness

Poisoned with the spite of hopelessness
The black bile of betrayal drowning my soul
The rabid fangs of helplessness, that grind my soul.
The inner core of my existence, reaching meltdown.

My lungs – inapt pipes,
filled with shattered glass.
My heart – denier of hope,
The tying knot of lies.

My back, your knives.
(A subject to your scalpelsand their daggers)

Ripping, burning,
through the core of denial.
(Severing) Blistering,
my mortal shell.
The putrid smoke of my burning soul,
amidst the flames of anger.

Am I attached to this construct of death.
The Asphyxiating grasp of its oxygen hands.
A prison with two hundred bars,
crushed between its walls-two thousand p.s.i.

The suspender of death
The denier of life
You lender of breath
Provider of lies

Pin my wings
with your needles (ego)
Vultures pretending
to be people for real

My skin – peeling down
every breath sharp as a knife.
The dam will crack and tumble down,
I saw the gap that’s leaking life.

Burn all your bridges.
Shatter all your bonds.
Sever the silver cord.
No one comprehends.
The candle burns
on both ends.
Profound anger yearns-
a wound that never mends.

Don’t you hook me to another machine…
