Steadily losing myself
Metamorphosis taking control
Gradually killing myself
Change in character taking its toll
Slowly crumbling to peices
Lost without a trace
Piecing together the remains
This mirror displays an umfamiliar face
Fear for who I am
Clueless to who I am not
Fear of this strange man
This monster I have wrought
My mind rots and decays
My sanity thins and depletes
I cannot bear the evanescence
Sleepless for days
Faceless for weeks
Gradually, I'm losing my essence
An insicion through my vein
Alas he's bleeding out
Now a masochist. He's to blame
My sanity, I begin to doubt
Killing myself sounds so good
Suicide sounds so right
Questioning whether I should
The option engulfes me in fright
With the idea I am thrilled
The blade I will not shun
Finally I have killed
This animal I have become
