Depression is a Whore : for rose_lepinski's "pain" comp

Depression is a whore and she's fucking me to sleep
She sucks out all my essence til my body's just a heap

The price paid with my soul
the change is in my mind
These words are an erection
Of the love I couldn't find

And I'm just trying to check out
Sign out and black out
But her legs keep me locked away
In this familiar crack house

Materialized from nothingness creationists designed
She broke my nose and cracked my skull
when she chipped for gems to mine

I'm spitting blood and spitting teeth
and cursing at the sky
I'm clawing at the frozen earth
to find a reason why

This farce I call a fucking life
is just too much to take
But as I cock the hammer back
my hands begin to shake

It's not so simple, it would seem
'cos suddenly I'm scared
It seems like that for now, atleast
my pointless life is spared

Even with such a simple task
I failed it miserably
I guess I'm cursed to see it through
and live in misery
