Ambiguous

Strip down my clothes

Explore my scars

Ask me about my ink

 

The wrapper floats

Flaming desire loathes

I give in

 

Music, too loud

Melody, not soothing

Burning cigarettes in doubt

My head is rushing

 

Dare not look at the sky

I envy the birds

Flying through the moonlight

While I sway to a lie

 

Take me out

Tell me it’s okay,

Fill my void

Pretend to stay

 

Believe you I’m fine

In a small town life

 

Smoking grass for a high

Another meaningless day

After an empty night
