By SolApathy



There’s a serenity in the silence I steal
Every moment unreal
 I escape the need to deal
Lifelong mistakes vanish within a puff of smoke
As I take another toke
Yet I know my failures are only a thought away
This haze only a smokescreen to the screams
I never really escaped from the evil I’ve done
The darkness of the deeds of this, one
Sitting I take the last toke
Knowing my life long ago went up in a puff of smoke

    The choice of color adds another layer to this. I really enjoyed the tempo of this.
