Loss of Soul

By Ortolan

a little bit tired you might just say
stone cold, sold out, yesterday
ever so slightly immolate
head down, turn round, masticate

just a small piece of dirt fixates
schizoid, stalwart, celebrate
can't get out of brain this hate
heart black, soul rot, calculate

chain the chains, the blood red rain
jail bars, my life, much too late
pain the pains, the cold cold hail
skull break, death wish, asphyxiate

all I want is intimage rage
wait to long now suffocate
all I want is turn the page
wish bone, pile drive, depreciates

    Well, truthfully I wasn't sure it was necessary either as it is a dying myth, but you never know what some might presume I suppose especially since the one I posted right after it was ' Devil is Laughing' (which I might add is obviously not about 'The Devil', but rather myself). True these things become known once you read it through though, so I appreciate you taking the time.Again, Thanks for reading! - Å’
