It’s the voices that plague you
That don’t allow you to relax and breathe
That reminds you of the level of imperfection in your life and creates a pain in your left breast
The voices that reminds you of the lovers that left
The family that are bereft
And the friends that are tired of your stress.
Blood trickles out from your ears as you explore your illegal vices
Mind burning – A fascinating headache, made beautiful by this inebriation
All in the name of staying strong, your mind goes soft
Slowly turning to mush
And so you handle life in a rush.
Erratic turns of your head
As you feel the weight of society in a crush.
Overwhelmed and unfulfilled, you go looking for love.
Often finding yourself trapped in a closet, unable to breathe
A self-imposed claustrophobic dream…
