Drugged Up And Elated

from by Teethmarks



Little white lies.
“I’ll be just fine”.

You’ll see me smiling at the finish line. My friends all slipped away, but my baby’s here to stay. I feel her breath against my ear. I slip it in when the coast is clear. She moves me, sweet and slow. My world, soft indigo. I’m writing a novel. I’m writing songs. I watch television all day long. I’m saving money. I’m leaving here. I’m breaking habits - switching to beer. I’ll save my love between these walls. I walk around the shopping mall. She’s breaking hearts and minds at will. She’s still got mine beneath her veil. And when she hits like sudden rain, structure dissolves and colours change. And life ain’t anything at all. We kiss like snakes and we crawl and crawl. Warm honey drips inside of me. She pulls me closer when I want to leave. Choking on stale air, on blood and dust. There ain’t no feelings that I can trust.

For where we are is Hell,
the man had said to me.
And where Hell is,
there must we ever be.
