Random Poem:

Blame
devilsbelboy

Hush, do not speak
 1
it is not hidden in your whisper
 2
Sigh, do not gulp
 3
an' please don't call me mister
 4
Blame is just a game
 5
On a coin that falls
 6
an' cannot be named
 7
 
 
It is not you
 8
It is not this whiskey bottle
 9
The blood that runs from your gash
 10
there is nothing hotter
 11
Than this blameless bash
 12
 
 
Blame
 13
not you, not me
 14
But the ice melting at the bottom
 15
 
 
Cry, or you may weep
 16
into the bloody pillow I force you in
 17
Nigh, the time is nigh
 18
Where I fantasize in my own sin
 19
 
 
Die, I just might die
 20
an' it's what I have chasing me
 21
Nigh, the time is nigh
 22
Eyes open are forced to see
 23
 
 
Blame
 24
not you, not me
 25
But the ice melting at the bottom...
 26
 
 
Of a glass
 27
That serves only to cut open
 28
A vein in the chord of C
 29
Is only meant to escape
 30
the bowels of this an' be free
 31
 
 
Blame
 32
not you, not me
 33
But the ice melting at the bottom
 34
