A pathetic excuse for a human being.
Silence screams out through the midnight air,
Fingers tear at clothes at the unforgiving hour,
Leaving later, looking the worse for wear,
Dominated by those with more power.
A viscous circle of one night stands,
To fix loneliness, then to remove the guilt,
Too much alcohol and fumbling hands,
Just to keep up the confidence you’ve built.
A pathetic excuse for a human being,
Can’t keep up a relationship for more than five minutes,
You want to but end up fleeing,
Back to the bar to push your limits.
You’re a danger to everyone, including yourself,
You know it but you won’t admit it,
During the daytime, you act like everybody else,
To hide the secret life that you won’t quit.
