Carbon Dioxide

You’re a poison to my mind, an intoxicating gas.

At first its hard to notice how you destroy me.

But slowly I felt the pain.

My heart heavy, my lungs full.

Gasping for an air that never comes.

Destroying my very being but you keep going.

Your path has no mercy, your want and love have no boundaries.

Take me to the lowest places and toss me around.

A sad puppet controlled by an evil person.

You desire to be worshiped.

You run through my veins and I know it’s in vain, your here to stay.

In your presence, I start to slowly slip away,

My thoughts disappearing, my fight running out.

My body drained my mind has fallen,

I’m trying to walk but find myself crawling.

Everything fades away and I know it’s a done game.
