This poison is killing me
A venom of my own creation
Whose chemical bite brings me to insanity.
This overthinking has me down.
As the black poison breaks my crown.
Thoughts of despair flood my mind.
I know what I should do.
Yet the deathly grip stops me from leaving it all behind.
Thoughts and words, I am torn between.
As I watch the time wasted from a theatre screen.
Oh, someone take me back through time.
When I younger and my mind ignorant.
When my head was of adventures and the sublime.
I know what’s wrong and why things are what they be.
But with the flooding of poison, my mind becomes the black sea.
