locked jaw from stressful sleep
in my dreams there’s no peace
can’t escape this sickening reality
this hurt invades me
your warmth evades me
you’re blissfully unaware
at least you pretend to be
am i dying,
did you do this to me?

i’ve been keeping busy
collecting all the teeth you pulled
confessions made just for the pain
just for the look on my face when i’d realize
you’re just a devil in disguise

angels cry

raise me
erase me
i spend days gazing longingly at the sun
pretending I am capable of feeling warm
you’re blissfully unaware
at least you pretend to be
i am dying
why did you do this to me?

my body as a house for flies
embrace their halo, reject life
