Why is that?


I long for the time before life taught its lessons,

But only if I keep the experience from them,

A sort of edited rewind.

To know of addiction without having to experiment,

That experiment becoming a lifestyle,

The lifestyle leading to the grave,



To know the sweetness and the wretched depravity it causes without touching it…

But that isn’t how this works,

That would be too easy,

I have an enemy I love,

One that cuts my throat as I embrace her,

And as I hold my neck together I say,

I love you too…
