Rewind

By Cattarax

I'm losing my mind

Trapped in euphoric medications

Enticed by self inflicted pain

And

Fear induced frustrations

.
.
.

I know I'm a sinner
Bloodied knees have paid due repentance
Still I dance the silken woven web
Of angel and demon


Torturous lashings arouse me



Sometimes I feel like a shark
Playing amongst barracudas

I bite my lip at unwanted attention
Just to entice it more...
.
.
.
I'm lost in emotion, I'm not sure how to feel…
When's the point you choose between reality and a midnight daydream??



Sadly both are quite disposable
With the appropriate whiskey prescription
But…
If one the other must follow
Adorned with puppet strings

.
.
.

If only I could have 5 minutes
To say goodbye …
And
What you expected in your absence...

.
.
.

Breathing still stings with treachery


As I crucify my heart to your soul
The reality I have come to has me attracted to evident tragedy
.
Then a tainted fairy caresses a nipple
Reminding of bondage and teeth marks
The ability to dangle in inhibition and dilute reality

.
.
.

Some days it feels good



Then rewinds back to you



.
.
.

Is this what I should settle for?? Or should I keep chasing the feeling of you??

    This piece makes us think of knowing that which is good but reaching for greater. But that which makes it greater could be so sinful. The difference between a tropical storm and a category four
