Once, twice, I roll the dice, always act nice and I lose a slice, As they remove my heart, piece by piece, this ongoing loss, will never cease. Oblivious, blind, I begin to unwind, the ravel of lies, those manipulated highs, a trail of sighs, as my hope slowly dies, silencing my cries.
I trust too easily, I am naive, I keep trying to protect myself, from those who deceive. I am led astray, by a mirage each day, but who can say, when the devil wants to play.
Angel courted by the devil, good and bad balanced and level, standing by your side, corruption I would revel. as time ticked, revealed tricks, as I sat back and let it ethics flip. Watching and learning, building knowledge concerning, morals turning, instinct learning, irrationality burning, goodness submerging, within evil is surging.
In a crowded room, I feel alone, Listening to superficial conversations, In mundane tones. A laugh, A smile, Interest is feigned, Whilst time ticks by - each minute is reigned. This accepted social conduct, That others seem to enjoy, Prompts me to simplify my mind, In order to fit with their ploy. Awareness separating and segregating, Me from the group, I feel forever trapped, In this ongoing loop, A broken record with infinite spins, Going round and round, Conformity wins. Hidden behind an iron shield,...
I avoid reality, side step responsibility, run away from everything, that keeps on haunting me. I show no empathy, feel no remorse, raw thoughts unkind, they've taken their course. Infinite in cycle, they begin to unwind, days become torture, by the past I am defined. Superficial facades, deceive judgemental eyes, tears don't even form, you'll never see me cry. Weep, emotions locked deep, unaddressed, just overlaid, by millions of empty nights, and lost days.
