Addiction is my middle name
Crying out to me
In the shadows lies my blade
Arms begging me to bleed
I’m strong they say but they don’t know
This monster deep inside
How am I supposed to show
The darkness that defines
My inner soul, black as night
These voices torment me
Always wrong and never right
Struggling to breathe
What am I supposed to do?
Tell them what they won’t hear?
This blade for now will have to soothe
My sorrows and my tears
Red rubies shine as they fall
So delicate and pure
The smile I wear tells it all
Addiction is my cure.
