My Hot-Wired Heart

My brain -
is overdosing on the memories
Like to have a syringe
Of the liquidize past
Hammered into this skull, of pulsating brain meat
That is overcooked
Burned to the 3rd degree
From the wildfire of memories
My heart -
pumping closer and closer to suicide
Like to be the bloody pendulum of its own demise
My soul
tearing with every thought of you
As if the mere thought of you
Turns on a blender with a helicopter blade
That robs the air I breathe
Cutting it short
No split ends
Just splitting headaches
That pounds like a thousand racing hearts
She didn’t need the keys to my heart
She still got away with it
Drove away in my hot-wired heart
Leaving me…..
to be roadkill
Skid marks
Of her burning out
Still remain on the rotten corpse
That once
Use to be me
Now as I sit here
Reincarnated as the middle finger
That stands tall
Yelling loudly and proudly
“Fuck You”
Without any words at all
Just speaking with action
On the hand of Time
As the seconds
Slowly start picking
Eating the life from beneath you
Scavenges upon your flesh of lies
Slowly devour
The very essence of you
You’re beautiful
But you don’t see that
Because you don’t look in the rear-view mirror
You know that
If you do so
You will see the memories
So keep driving in my hot-wire heart
The memories will catch up with you
And you will finally see
What you left behind
Apart of you
That you left to rot
To skunk up the roads of yesterday
You left apart of yourself to die
That part….was me

Artist's Description

This has nothing to do with my present relationship. Everything is good…smilez….I just was thinking of my last relationship on this one. I sometimes wonder if they ever looked back after they stole away with my heart. Do they ever regret what they have done. I would love to ask ….but what has been done has been done. And does who linger in the past just ….live forever in the past never to see the future….
