Always

y’know,

you’re looking for answers

in all the wrong places

always running

craving

some kind of mental clarity

but all you ever do

is push those around you

away

further and further

each day

y’know, if it wasn’t so tragic

it would be funny

and i’d laugh until

my sides burst

emptying my alcoholic guts

onto the patterned carpet

beneath my feet

you say,

that love and happiness

will complete you

yeah, that’s what everyone says

as the years escape

like all those

lost lovers

with your flesh stretching and cracking

leaving you

spiralling out of control

and

the thing is,

that it just might be

that you’ll never even find

what you were

ever

looking for
