Polychromatic pain

Six feet deep
in this loneliness
Where demons
are my only company

Lights burn my mind
Words sting my soul

An opulescent orange
Drenched in disgust
nothing moves forward
Everything holds me back

Music is my only companion
my brain drinks in lyrics of
profoundly damaged artists

What damages them?
Pain,disgust, life

Flowers grow in my ribcage
Blood their water
bones their bed

But soon, they too
will wilt before they bloom
 F u l l y

Like a woman who
saves herself for the
right man,
but who offers herself
to strangers in bars
because she knows
time is her enemy

These flowers will be
destroyed, just like the body
in which they were planted

Six feet deep in
Polychromatic pain
Six feet deep
being driven insane

No pills, no potions
No drink, no escape
Your labyrinth is yours alone
You will die
attempting to escape
