Lust
unknown

To all old habits yet to fall,
 1
I dare you to make trouble all,
 2
For dying is a welcome mate -
 3
 
 
And addiction is but just a trait
 4
Imposed on me through self-debate that
 5
Loneliness can conquer all.
 6
 
 
How can i ignore the call
 7
Of decency that shelters all?
 8
My moral compass lies in wait.
 9
 
 
For everybody prone to hate
 10
The darkness lacking in the day,
 11
Reveal yourself, resist decay:
 12
Disease, the light abominates.
 13
 
 
I remember being truly happy
 14
I was selfish and ignorant,
 15
The former being a feeling
 16
Never to be reached,
 17
Yet I'm pleased to see so many people
 18
Misunderstand the words I regurgitate.
 19
Never home, never alone, yeah
 20
I see no normalcy in how I function,
 21
so full of sorrow, but helpful!
 22
 
 
At least those have learned
 23
That with happiness truly comes
 24
The need for therapy, and never
 25
Feel a need to join in.
 26
Mathematically being the happiest
 27
Yet the least alive, I do believe
 28
I walk among the newly dead.
 29
 
 
I wish the question never crossed my mind;
 30
To what dreary existence do we return
 31
When not graced with brilliance?
 32
