Smoldering and Drained

(Originally published by Horror Sleaze Trash)

as I smoke the cigar

my life dwindles and 

burns toward the end

correspondingly

as I drain the whiskey glass

my time on earth swirls

and disappears in like manner

I ask for nothing more

than a distinctive feeling

I apologize unto all existence

if that is entirely too much

you promise everything 

but give nothing

to me that is something 

bank roll my existence

forego the inevitable

have sex with my mind

masturbate with intention

colder than an igloo

claustrophobic as such 

indescribable sensations

masquerading as emotions

desensitized and mesmerized

hypnotized by the facade

painted faces and bloody cunts

long live the weekend

the towel is on the bed

an indecent desire 

beckons my sensibilities

dragging my mindset to the 

depths of earth’s core

hypnotized by the innate

led astray from moral concept

only to delve deep 

within cranial blackness

dwelling on negativity

no escape foreseeable

tedium lingers

darkness spreads

and the song plays on
