Like A Fire 

So this is what you tell yourself  while laying awake at night, drinking red whine, waiting for a fight. 

 You know what you are, a monster like me.  Tied to the past, chained to whats left.  A fire burning up leaving scars on my body.  Just spreading like a wildfire. 

Tell yourself  those pretty little lies.  Dressed up desires that never get exposed. 

  So this is what you tell yourself while laying awake at night, drinking red while, waiting for a fight. 

  Maybe I’ve lost sight of who to trust.  Turn the corner , ready your gun. 

Side by side 

Side by side , thought I still feel alone.  Darkness invades what is left. 

What I’ve become,  it’s not up for discussion.   It’s buried deep inside.  

 What I love is up for grabs for I cannot regain a sense of motivation.  The urgency is tearing me apart, though I don’t want to be a fault, but here I am.
