A Heart Growing Darker

Two Advil on the countertop Jack underneath my pillow Hardcore synced to the TV And a few tattered verses stuck to the wall The sun shines too brightly My alarm blares too suddenly And everyone is asking me questions The bus ride is empty but I huddle in a corner Please god don’t let any […]

Deepest, Darkness Essence

Never mind the doubters on the outside I can hardly withstand the onslaught Of tremors in my head, the reminders All the things I’ve done and said wrong And each little nugget I tried to ignore It call comes back, it comes back to destroy Confidence, control, it’s laid to waste so fast I truly […]
