There’s a poison in my veins
It flows every direction unwilling to be tamed
It’s not contagious but it scares them all
Everyday body collapsing in a painful fall

There’s a stranger in my head
It hijacks all I’ve ever said
It doesn’t come out to kindly play
The threat is always in its replays

There’s a bomb inside my heart
It sparks here, jumps, then starts
It shows me all the things I want to forget
It leaves me shredded with regret

There’s a spell life cast maliciously on me
It’s unbreakable can’t you see?
It hides away till it decides
It’ll never let me breathe peace’s sighs

There’s stranger in my past
Someone stronger whom I’d thought would last
Yet now the mirror shows my shame
I’ll never be the same

There’s a poison in my veins.
It’s take me over all the same.
Breaks my body and my brain.
No nothing will ever be the sane.

There’s a hope inside my heart
It’s fed by well intended sparks.
It’s something I’m told will help me heal
So with bended knees I’ll try anything and kneel

For when this poison runs it’s course
And I’m filled with pasts remorse
I’ll bravely stand again
Till it’s written with this holy pen.

Now you know the story’s true.
It’s broken all but you
So stay strong while I lose control
It always helps to be consoled

There’s a poison in my veins
It flows every direction still untamed
It’s not contagious but it scares them most
Everyday body collapsing I make these posts
