Diary of a Wretched Mind

Moments, pictures, captured time
Diary of wretched mind
sickened pleasure, twisted pain
Reliving sins soaked in vain
Seeking the cure to end my ways
Drowning before the end of days
Needles sink into to hollow veins
Darkness enveloping my thoughts of flight
The void swallowing every glimpse of light
Struggling to stay above the tension
Trigger finger in suspension
**** it all and did I mention
Condemned souls receive no mention
Its not pity that created me
It was the endless suffering
Endured at the hands of peril
Cutting with the jagged edge
Tainting the wounds of agony
If only I had the will to see
The lies you laid in front of me
choosing to suffer instead of believe
Inside lays dormant my disease
infection spread like prophecy
Despite my cries despite my pleas
If begged for mercy would you hear
Or have it fall upon deaf ears
Like a burlesque show set for the blind
A taste so sweet but bitter fed
Forever burning on wings of lead
Hearts beating in bodies dead
Life to lifeless
Casting silence, with words unsaid
Iím behind you, but still ahead
I was gone before you left
