sweeten up the taste/less

close the curtains
turn off the light
hide inside this fortress
of the lucky life
you were born into

don’t wander

whiskey in a tea cup
cigarettes on lollipops
eat up your sweets
for they can make you blind

a dash of honey
a pinch of sugar
sweeten up the tasteless
feel alive in the numb

for the ecstasy
grab any soul you see
suck on their heart
until the only blood left
is clumping up around the marks

any addiction will do
no change comes easy

stay away, world
i don’t want to see
this devastating reality
