Why is that?

Complications,

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,

Early,

Oh,

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…
