AND IT DON'T STOP

by shogun

AND IT DON'T STOP

YEAH SO I'M AN ADDICT.
THOUGH YOU'D NEVER KNOW, IM GOOD AT IT.
AND I HAVE NO INTENTION TO CHANGE IT SO STOP RIGHT THERE AND DON'T TRY IT.
MAINTAIN MY ROBOTIC WAY TO COVER THE SHAME OF MY MISTAKES......
SPEAKING OF HIGH STAKES THERE ARE NON HERE.
JUST A LIFE THAT SOMETIMES ISN'T WORTH LIVING WITH ALL THIS FEAR.
BUT I'M A REAL MAN'S MAN IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.
CROSS ME AND I'LL INFLICT THE PHYSICAL PAIN FROM MY PENT UP EMOTIONAL STRAIN.
YEAH SO I'M AN ADDICT.
MAYBE JUST MAYBE IT WAS THE LACK OF BEING BREAST FED OR NEGLECT AS A LITTLE CHILD IN DISTRESS.
AS A PRE-TEEN EXPERIMENT.
AS AN ADULT WHO JUST CAN'T SEEM TO DEAL WITH IT.
YEAH SO I'M AN ADDICT.
BUT WHAT REALLY DOES THAT MEAN?
IS MY ADDICTION SUPERFICIAL OR IS THERE MORE THAN WHAT I SEE?
MENTAL SCARS ARE CAGE BARS BLOCKING OUT THE TRAUMA.
THE CAUSE OF ALL THE CRACKS IN MY ARMOR.
THE ASPHYXIATION OF MY SMILE.
THE REASON I JUST WANT TO LASH OUT BASH OUT BUT BALL UP AND DROWN OUT IN SALTY TEARS OF FRUSTRATION.
AND TO MY AMAZEMENT THE PAIN WONT STOP.
AND IT DON'T STOP....
AND MY MIND DON'T STOP.
AND THE NIGHTMARES DON'T STOP.
AND THE DAY MARES THEY JUST HAUNT.
AND IT DON'T STOP
AND IT DON'T STOP.
AND IT DON'T STOP.
I WANT TO CUT IT OUT AND SHUT IT UP, SILENCE ALL THE SCREAMING THOUGHTS.
I WANT TO LOBOTOMIZE THE CAUSE.
I WANT TO STOP FIGHTING FOR THE CAUSE.
I WANT TO SEE IT ALL IN FLAMES
BUT IT DON'T STOP.
JUST A VICIOUS CYCLE OF NEVER-ENDING MENTAL MANIFESTATIONS OF EVIL PEOPLE, THINGS AND PLACES.
BURYING ITSELF DEEP INTO THE HEART OF ME POISONING THE CORE OF ME.
I JUST NEED FOR IT TO STOP.
AND IT DON'T STOP.
AND IT WONT STOP.
AND IT DON'T STOP.
SO YEAH IM AND ADDICT.
A PRODUCT OF THIS ENVIRONMENT.
A BY PRODUCT OF THIS CRUSHING RESTRAINT.
YEAH SO IM AN ADDICT.....
AND IT DON'T STOP.....
