Self inflicted

Self inflicted

I sit and ruminate waiting for my skin to effervesce

And overflow with ornaments to deify reductive hues

Stricken by exsanguination lately I've become an epiphyte mess

Sever my extremities and contradict the consonants beyond recognition

Ignite my carcass into wilted blues

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I lie solemn in this languid dreamstate

Catatonic in the distant panorama

Writhing in the ultraviolet spectacles of weakness

Pleading for an echoed verisimilitude reminiscent of that realm

A cemetery fog settled over lugubrious skies

How frigid and harmonious the screams of those shades tugging at my subconscious

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hold a grudge with the summer as it tears us apart

Nightshade pastels drizzle down my limbs and its painted on an effigy of your heart

Hundreds of blanks fill up my brain with meteor showers and reminders of disparate remarks
