5 more minutes

With coal for teeth I sink beneathe the usual layer
She doesn’t understand and I won’t let her
No friend comes to visit my home
No friends to come visit.

Silent betrayal, if I bite, teeth will break
Stay silent poised to attack, crippled snake
Keep depression secret as to not rock boats
It all stirs once I’m alone… it all stirs.

No passion nor any drive
Eat just to stay alive
Climb this sheer wall with my claws
I evolved long ago.

Find no happiness in money
Find no happiness in forced love
Lose my mind in hoping to find
An answer without a question.

Made my bed and so I must lay
In all the tomorrows of pain
Sink my rotting teeth into flesh
There is no pass mark to this test.

Find some focus once in a while
It never lasts
Beat myself to a bloodied pulp
Curious past.

Kink the spine to reach a truth
I always knew
Fish in the desert learns how to dig
Survive in the sands.

Shoulders weaken from this load
Too heavy for my weak frame
Pressure builds and I must exit
Can’t swallow all of this shit.

Wait.

I need some time.

To close my eyes.

And find something deep inside.

Just five more minutes, please.
