The Life You Could Have Lead
Blinded and confused by the haze that fills your decrepit mind
Dwindling away not by only age, all the years of reusing, never learning the meaning of refusing
So your past was a drag, as you always have said, you never managed to be good enough
Always looking for something more, trying to find happiness through the eyes of any but your own
Happiness does not come easy when you solely seek it out through everything but your own heart
Slipping at the edge of finally being free, obtaining the ability to fully, irrevocably forget
So many years gone by, not one that is free of a thick mixture of regret
Look at how time has weaved itself throughout each pore of your skin
Heinous, the only word that describes the beast you have become
Grungy beard that hangs to the collarbone of anorexic prominence
The pain you feel is irreversible, for your love for addiction is more pungent than your own life
Hold on to a time when you could explain who you are and what you want to become
Now the future is in the scope of the next trip; hanging by a thread, feeling the euphoria of freedom
Not much more can your heart take; close your eyes, take your last breath, every sane soul will keep a distance
No turning back this time around, feel as the blood rushes to your wrists and head alike
No more pain, tormenting or worrying of such subjects as survival; for that my friend, is as surreal as the life you could have lead
