Excuse me, sir Can I buy a bit of time? Death day is coming fairly soon Looking at stars, I could read the signs Slicing scythes through souls To leave a hole in my whole being. Without any modification still, I feel a broken existence is all they're seeing. That's not to say this life is shallow But the targets I am aiming just end up breaking When my points are sitting hollow.
Sir, if I could have a moment more, My life fluid dripping from my heart Puddling the bathroom floor. No one tends to notice, no one stops Today, I kick the bucket. Tomorrow, they just mop. Forgetting to be human To all other human beings, Writing cries but no one's reading.
Please, if I could have a second... Okay, no hand wavering, I get it. Just let me close my eyes Drifting into another spectrum.
THEY make you feel special- and then leave as if you were nothing more than a bag of trash. THEY tear you down without even knowing it- slowly chipping away the pieces most prized to you. THEY sink you to the bottom- and only then do they leave so you’re left drowning; watching them float back up; wondering how they manage to be completely fine after wrecking your life. THEY lie and steal- parts of your heart and carry it with them as trophies of all the people they’ve hurt. THEY make empty promises- they seem solid, but in reality are nothing more than hot air. THEY are the **** of the earth- and they reel you, offering you the world knowing that’s exactly what they’re going to strip from you...
how odd even quaint you, the paint chip that i press against the wall and have pressed against the wall (and maybe will press against the wall but hopefully not but probably but hopefully not but probably) and i would like very much for you to stay pressed holding to that perfect bit of open space so shaped to you and your edges
but instead you lean outwards peering not want to wear uniformity and so you will and so how bravely that you, the paint chip stand out so caught in glory that you don't see i could make a bag of they, the paint chips that you don't see i'll just strip the whole wall and layer it fresh with paint that doesn't talk back
