I need your help,
Forced by yourself.
Submersed live, a random wife.
Milked and nursed to health,
With white rubber knives,
And soft beehives.
I won’t lie, the foggy skies
Must rely on teary eyes.

When we play, a vision stray.
A smorgasbord. Remember what I was looking for?

You do. Tyrannous.
You do. You’re in this.

I need a new way,
There’s always more to pay,
The lights are out and shadows gone.
Of course you’re here to stay.
You live to feed me pain,
So long, swelling gain.
Give me all and let it flow,
Like blood on my rib cage.

When you cry, nothing’s awry.
A softer core, remember what I am here for?

When we lose, no better muse,
When it ends, I’ll still pretend.
Your smorgasbord, was just what I was looking for.
