“Smooth and ordered on the outside; roiling and chaotic and desperately secretive underneath, but not noticeably so, never noticeably so.”

Track Name: Scared and Wanting Anything
here I am on the lam
I don't know where I'm going
or who I am

here I go once again
I'm sorry that I made it
so complicated
-
here I am with my serum
I don't have my friend
I'll have my venom

here I go once again
feeling like I lost my
sense of feeling some pride
-
here I am on the lam
I don't know where I'm going
or who I am
-
here I go once again
I'm sorry that I made it
so complicated
-
here I am torn asunder
if it weren't for you
I'd be 6 feet under
-
here I go once again
petty and unhappy
scared and wanting something

anything
Track Name: R
It was February of this year.
I've noticed your frailty ---
guttural, pulse-pounding
lips locked like I'm about to
lose my sense of self..
like I already have.
attempting to
understand you
while the ghosts
graze my neck-line ---
no longer did I fear,
no longer did I notice the crowd,
just the outline of your jean pocket.
I wanted to steal
your belongings,
your heart,
your thoughts,
your aura.
no sentient being deserves you.
no celestial deity governs you.
the thought of bleak nothingness
after death never frightened me
before I met
you.
you are the only one who can judge me.
we are past the connections and the niceties,
there is an unimaginable force that is paralyzing,
and all it takes is a simple glance.
that's not normal. it's just not.
you are the still-frame of a moment that
impacts,
enthralls,
ignites.
you destroy me in the most enlightening way possible.
I remain as nothing in your absence, a ghost
grazing your neck-line.
If I never see you again,
it is only because I'm trying to lengthen my life, ironic...
because you make me feel like I'm alive.
It is March of this year.
I've noticed my frailty.
