hate me

for the deceptions I whisper to my own soul

these lies I tell to comfort my sorrows

spoken with twisted tongue and broken jaw

I feed the hunger

for that which I'll never have

placated

my desire lies wrapped in a blanket of fear

forgotten dreams

lay under crumbled hope

this despair

which rots most foully my heart

till truth

like poisoned vipers tongue

eats away the barriers I've built

leaving me

with me

and my hate
