Temptation

April 30th, 2011

I heard temptation say my name
It whispered in my ear
And all this guilt lays on my mind
Blasting for all to hear
The emptiness just can’t be filled
No matter who’s around
And the devil knows just what I want
But it never will be found
I found comfort in my ways
But it never fills the hole
And the more I try to drain my mind
The more my thoughts are full
And as I wait so pathetically
I wonder if anyone knows
I wait for a simple word
That passes as it goes
And these moments are slipping away
I’m wasting my own time
But I know to hold this in
I’ll always be just fine

Endgame

January 24th, 2022

Am I too obvious
Predictable to a fault
Exposed wounds are bleeding
So you rub it in like salt
Am I too honest for you
Someone that communicates
Feelings are too much
You’re done with my updates
But you’re too inconsistent
You go from hot to cold
I can’t keep up anymore
This routine has grown old
So now it is your turn
And this game is chess
You’ll play checkmate
But I’ve won nonetheless
Because I owe it to myself
After all I’ve been through
It’s time to move on
From this life I outgrew
