Ryme with the wicked

I was born a believer, walking the lone path
Searching for a place where my soul can find solace
I may seem crazy, but sanity lies within
I carry guilt, yet not deserving of blame's burden

This, the essence of my being, my true nature
If you dislike it, I'll still remain, firm and sure

I desire to possess, yet consume what I crave
It slips past my lips, no control as it enslaves
An evil dwells within, oh, how I am aware
But I still desire more, taking a bigger share

Though I may despise you, my love for you remains
Caught between these feelings, I bear the strain
A double nature I possess, conflicting in my heart

Now branded a heretic, faith in both God and man lost
I'm a demon now, free from their righteous cost
But no angel opens their gates to let me in
My wheels spin fast, leaving my sinful past behind

I desire to possess, yet consume what I crave
It slips past my lips, no control as it enslaves
An evil dwells within, oh, how I am aware
But I still desire more, taking a bigger share

Though I may despise you, my love for you remains
Caught between these feelings, I bear the strain
A double nature I possess, conflicting in my heart

Now heed this warning, these final words I say
Reject me, and you shall be consumed by flames' fray
For I am awakened, never to sleep or rest
Bloodshot eyes, marked as a freak, I am blest

Impatience a weakness, causing no intended harm
Just a man, ablaze with a burning heart's charm
