"Beautiful Poison"

Do not touch the butterfly. You can not hold him close, for it will die, wither as a rose. And you can not grab the rose. You would surely let it go, for the thorns are as sharp as knives, they'll stick you to the bone.

And once the poison sets in, there's no turning back. You're in it for life, like the wolf to his pack. But if that butterfly should fly away, watch it go, as you stay.

And if that rose should start to fade, watch it fall, its petals betray. Let the poison take affect, as you take your last breath, for surely it feels like there's nothing left.

But if that butterfly, should it return, and another rose grow, in the ashes that have burned, then the poison shall pass, just open your eyes, and once again you'll awake, to see the sun rise.


      Is it me?

        Is it my own vice?

           Am I addicted to this torture?


       The answer is no.

              I'm addicted to you.

     Its you.

           You're my vice,

                           A torture in itself.


Just hand me the knife,
just give me the gun.
There's no point to hide,
no reason to run.
Everything is fine,
the damage is done.
I'll say goodbye.
You've already won.


Cut out the cancer,
watch it burn,
as soon as the air hits
it will take a turn for the worst,
he'll never learn,
and neither will I.

You do describe that part of it well. Let's hear some positive, constructive self-talk about repairing all the damage, ok? You can do it.
