Nikki got bored again. That is bad. And so is this.

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.
