Test my strength! I inhale you. Cold shoulders and blood red eyes blinking. Warm hands that no one can depend on. This is a war against the lungs. This body is prepared for this. I don’t even trust these legs they lead me in the night drunk. Without control I clear my throat. The circle starts. Once again a chest is full of fog. Sit down! Breathe in! Hold on to the holy substance. Numbers are against all odds right now.
I'm one of the fools that can't believe that it won't last forever. We thought this… this is not the day we die. Tears are falling because you don't care it won't last forever. Smoke runs deep in the vein of boredom. Burn the beast! I’m done fooling around. I’m done. I’ve done my time I’ve done. Burning paper rockets growing from the sky. Inhale. Feel the tunnel pulling you under the ground. Woods in the depth keeping you alive. It died out. Give me some light. It died out in my hands.
Give me some light.
