Nightshade Girl

I was somewhat taken aside
Amputated indulgence in wicked spices
Like the jagged edges in the back of her skull
Pierces my unassuming lonesome leech machine
It's this nightmare that cursed me
Not knowing how it begins to drown spirits
I gathered up chances and took to gambling risks
Like a Big Bang things went bad
Spit out words, near miss
Dead on, deflected by illusionary measures
Bounced back on humiliating memories
Nasty stream of a broken thought
I thought I'd dreamed she'd say
Dissolved under those oh so pale stars
