    Who betrays as I creep
    as I creep the shadows of the world
    life surrounds me and escapes me
    betrayal leaps, creeps, curls
    my thoughts are not my own
    slip slide
    deep down
    through the caverns of the world
    dark and murky through life’s underbrush
    catacombs of hate and terror provide a safe passage
    where lies and distorted truth is born and breed
    who betrays as I creep
    as I creep by the dark shadows
    the dark corners and abandon buildings which were once souls
    stores that were friendly and homey are not drug dens cover-ups
    deep deep inside is not longer a secret
    the outside looks like the inside
    the inside looks like the outside
    who betrays as I run through
    run through the streets that are empty yet filled
    filled with people who are numb and mindless
    streets bustling
    bustling with death, disease, sickness and pain
    who betrays as I creep
    when I strive, spit, struggle to break free
    I want to no longer creep
    I want to walk
    and no longer crawl
    and no longer stumble and fall
    who betrays but me
    my own mind body and soul
    who betrays as I creep
