Fighting against this urge,
is a constant struggle.
Everywhere I look,
I see it.
I see the eyes,
I smell the smell.
Dragging me in,
banging me on the tables of Hell.
Its forcing me to knock on the devils door,
but no,
I can't go in.
I run away,
I breathe in enjoyment.
The smell of a concoction of escape.
Once you start,
you can never go back.
I feel this demon,
breathing down my neck,
slicing my veins one by one,
knocking me down.
It is the only escape now,
this monster,
is all I have,
the only way to live.
