“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


There's a demon on
My shoulder
And he wears a charming smile
And a warm
"Hello"
As his fingers stretch my own lips
Into a grimacing
Imitation
Of happiness, oh why
Do I allow
For such an addiction to oppression and
Insanity,
And how might I keep from fighting
Fire with
Fire
When I've become the devil
Conducting a symphony
Of my own
Temptations?
