Poison in the Posies

IMG_3173

I cut myself

Just to bleed you out

I drained the pen

In hopes that I could write you out

It may take

too many years

The only way to find out

Is wading in the fear

 

Why must we gain wisdom

In cruel ways

Stick it to me slowly

Let it drip into my veins

 

Certain days I can see

The dust I was before

When apathy passed around me

and left me crumpled on the floor

Plenty of art

With this fodder

And the sting

You don’t connect the dots

until it calls for you

And you trade in everything

 

Why must we learn the truth

In cruel ways

Stick it to me slowly

Let it drip into my veins

 

At times I just despise you

For what you did

Even though I know I shouldn’t

But still I do

See it, Here lies what’s broken

The truth is that it’s gone

I think I once had confidence

But it has since floated on

 

Why must we gain wisdom

In cruel ways

Stick it to me slowly

Let it drip into my veins

 

You’ll Be-elzebub

while they dance around your fire

Ring around the rosie

But don’t you dare get cozy

There’s poison in the posies

Get thee away from me

The one I thought was love

Who became the phantom

That haunts me from beneath

Mountain meets erosion

Is what I’ve become

You turned away too often

To convince me you’re the one.
