The cognizance is ours
To hold what we obtain
Whether morbid or carnal,
We’re here to entertain.
Come live my life
So you’ll find empathy alone
Never enough to stimulate your mind.
I remember who I used to be
Before the songs became sorrows.
Written in words we can’t speak.
I remember how I used to dream
Before the visions turned.
Nightmares of reality.
My disgrace holds your attention
Sate your appetite with my destruction
A ripple fighting the wave.
Keep watching and you might see
The unraveling of an identity
Demons sewn into the past
Frayed, unbound, writhed… released.
