    Sober (arguments)

    How long must I be this lustful
    Spiteful, Seldom my wishes do come true
    here when time blows the whistle
    never wanting the dream to end of you
    I want to be that fighter
    I wanted to see you weakened to the core
    I Don't care what comes tomorrow
    I will always lust for more
    Someone tell me why can't I be the one
    someone tell me why the **** I am
    Every shadow is just behind me
    I'm so easy to find
    Yet through the sin and guilt, I still find a new face to smile
    I ask you to come and sit for I'm lonely
    But be gentle for this while
    Deep in the fire you killed my soul
    You call me that worthless liar
    that's not entirely untrue
    I'm bigger than you,
    why do I need to lie to you
    forsaken my many chances
    I get no joy from laughing
    I get no joy from being right
    dying to live til death in a lie
    I live to only complicate you
    Yank the meaning out of your screams
    Break the screams down to a whisper
    Why can't I just be with us
    Why can't I be we
    When the dream ends
    when this dream ends
    And for that you call me bastard
    only because you love to sleep with me
    love me just to trust enough
    just enough to lie still
    My words have found that center in you
    launched opened another hole
    why when we cry we knock things over
    Trust in me and fall again as well
    Trust me
    and become sober
    start things over
    You hate me when you love me
    I want to be a father still
    but the ground claimed my heart
    envy is in my soul
    I can't even see straight now
    nothing left in me to tear apart
    I so ******* hate your control
    but our lives are too much alike
    I don't work so well under pressure
    my heart don't work so well either
    Praying for an angel's whisper
    telling me not to yell
    I can't get away from you
    I just want to sleep forever and die
    this day just needs to die
    I want
    I want
    what I want
    to no longer hear you

    and be sober

    What would happen if the arguing stopped? Would it even feel normal? Something probably became intoxicating about it. Tight write poet.

    This made me want to cry for for what was and what can never be.

    So bittersweet, Poet, but beautiful still.



    ...And....
