I’ve Grown Weary In My Idols


Horrified by the darkness,
I ignited myself on fire.
Consumed by the flames,
I was swept away
By the cold night air.
I’ve starved too many hours
Rotting inside my own
foul drunkenness,
I’ve slaughtered too many days
Denying, abysmally, my own
blood’s lust.
I’ve grown weary in my idols,
But reasoned closer, now,
to you.
