Distemper

I.
Would love to see you change.
I’m sorry, I didn’t know.

I.
Would love to rearrange.
The chemicals, you can’t outgrow.

What secrets lie beneath this
Devil’s throne?
Bewildered by and insolent.
When affliction’s, your coping stone.

I’m sorry, I couldn’t care.
Whether your eyes,
and bones,
are even there.

Cold.
Severed.
The air, is not so clear.

And I’ll crawl!
Before I grow!
Before I throw!
Surrender!
All away…

As snow does to a fire.
Some nest from which escapes.
Has murmured its ballad.
While your fault lines conspire.

Cold!
Sheltered!
The air, is not so clean.

And I’ll crawl!
Before I grow!
Before I throw!
Surrender!
All away…

And I’ll ride this wave of heresy.
Beneath your voodoo path and way.
Incredulous, I look away.
I’ve nothing left for you to see.
The Demons that you hold so deep.
I pray that you’ll someday release.
But if your means to medicate.
Continue on this artery.
I promise you I won’t remain.
While you drown yourself in tragedy!

I’m gone.
Wounded.
The drug, is now your vein.

And I’ll crawl.
Before I grow.
Before I throw.
Concenter.
Disarray…

I promise you!

I won’t remain…

And I was in the Darkness; so Darkness I became…
