To the seductive sounds of society
And the roar of laughter
My chrysalis creeks and cracks
My wings unfold
Shimmering, colourful, bold

They take flight
Thirsty for young night
And many a delight
Many a delight

But instead finds filthy philandering
Too many ephemeral embraces
So easily erased
I lose myself
In a hundred hungry hands
And sink into an abyss of ’’adoration’’
Lusty adoration
Needy adoration
Criminal adoration
Selfish adoration
That seeks to penetrate and puncture my soul

I fly
I Fall
I land
But can no longer stand
With spinning head
And rotating room
I lose my sense of gravity
I am lost
In a night that chills me

What am I but a pretty parody
In a nasty caricature of society

My wings!
My wings!
I’ll happily give
For a cold, comforting cocoon
And its sterile silence
To wash away these soul tears
That spill but never clean
The dirt inside of me

Artist's Description

Inspired by a bad experience I had two weeks ago.
Long story short – went to an old ’’friend’s’’ house, someone I trusted. Ended up being drugged.
But even in my drugged state I am a stubborn bastard – and managed to kick off a few perverts and locked myself in the bathroom and phoned a friend to help me.

Am now okay, except I am no longer the social butterfly I once was. Shall stick to flittering about in the cocoon of comfortable safe havens (houses of family and my best friend).
