Stutter and spout
These yonic convulsions will sprout
For everyone close enough to see

Inside it's far too loud
No matter how deep I breathe or shout
And it barely even makes sense to me

There's diligence in the moves I use
And care is taken never to
Abuse you
Use you

I slip on stains dropped from my lips
But you still catch me with a kiss
And it's always
Brand new

And when I fuck up all over again
Will you still be there
Or will I meet my end?

Cries die at every chance
Growls overheard by strangers who glance
At the freak whose wish is to live in a dream

I can't shut myself down
Every time a twitch pulls me out
Set off by an abysmal memory

I scold my lungs with the smallest fire
It's the closest I'll get to my head's pyre
Where I burn

I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm old news
I'm bored, I'm lost, I'm confused
And fucking

It's late again and I feel the same
And I'll only ever
have myself to blame

You've got enough to go through
The most that I can do
Is leave to
Help you

Don't let your pain drag on
You'll be better when I'm gone
I'm useless
To you

The bug in my throat has seized my words
So for another day
I won't be heard
