Yesterdayyesterdayi nearly disposed ofmy existenceand i still have to wakeup, caked in a layer ofunfeeling burn marks, justto be swallowed by crowdsof ignorance again.just because i'm notcoughing up a lungdoesn't mean i'm notsick, and if you won'thelp me slay this monsterby giving me over to ahospital for souls, it's yourown damn fault i'm nevercoming home.

AlcoholicYour tux is the colorof a coal miner’s faceafter a long, hard day of work:something you’ve neverhad to experienceYet you talk as thoughyou’re just as worn out;your trivial chit-chatis turning syrupy with every sip,although your sentencesaren’t getting any sweeterAnd you grab another glassof the effervescent liquid,hoping the sea of black will blend together,and it will be dark enoughfor you to fall asleepAnd as you walk tipsily to the bathroom,the overpaid opera singerbelts her last high note- a bit too high;your crystal glass shattersinto a thousand piecesAnd with it, you shatter too.
six words concerning the futurethe world's spinning promptly to hell
Humans Are Like RagdollsMaybe humans are like ragdolls.Some of us are manufactured,With stitches that are a bit off.And we get put back on the shelf.While others are made perfectly,Included with bows and pretty dresses.But eventually we all get loose strings,And we become such tattered, worn out things.We all eventually pull at these loose endsUntil we all unravel.And some can be sewn back together,While others are broken forever.

From Time To Time.From Time To Time.Want to know the value of ten years?Why don’t you try asking a newly divorced couple?And see if they have any wasted tears.Want to know the value of three years?Why don’t you try asking an exhausted graduate?And see if they are ready to start their career.Want to know the value of nine months?Why don’t you try asking a distraught mum?And see if she misses her baby bump.Want to know the value of four weeks?Why don’t try asking someone who has been fired?And see if they like prospect of living on the streets.Want to know the value of an hour?Why don’t you try asking someone who missed their alarm?And see if they still had time to eat breakfast and shower.Want to know the value of a minute?Why don’t you try asking someone who missed the last train?And see if they will be momentarily pushed to their limits.No matter the amount,Every single moment counts.Even when the first day becomes every dayAnd all the seconds a
