As I Sit Here And Rot - Poem by Nicole D'Settemi

I cannot stop these cravings
I just really want to shoot it
Oh, yes, I know the truth
Oh yes I fu*king blew it

I'm not sure where to turn
Or how to possbily hide it
I'm completely addicted now
And, I need not deny it

Everything has paused
It's like life has suddenly stopped
And I'm stuck craving this sh*t
As I sit here and rot

I cannot shake these feelings
Of being out of control
I cannot seem to retain
All that the Devil stole

I'm frightened now,
You son of a bitch!
Oh God, how I'm pained...
JESUS CHRIST, how I itch!

My skin it is throbbing
My heart it beats slow
Yet, I feel as if I'm on fire
As if I could explode!

Go away-
Stop invading my mind PLEASE
I run and I hide
But, you always seem to find me!

You are there all the time
Day in through the night
This must be the battle
And, I am losing this fight!

Yet, I do not give in
Or at least I won't give up NOW
But, I'm heading straight for danger
If I don't GET UP NOW!

You are warping my thoughts
You are fu*king with my vision
With all your sick fine-tuning
And, excellent precision

It isn't over, though
And, I will continue to fight
On I will continue
Because, for me-I know what is right!

I'll fight for those people
That say that they care
And, I'll kill all the useless
Those who did dare

Dared to help add to
This Lost Posioned Soul
Dared to be heartless
And, apathetic and cold

It is my turn now
To be the thief
And, they will feel sorrow
And, anger, and grief

It's over now-
Why, I've taken your head!

I've won, I'm clean
I'm fresh, I'm new
And, you're dead, you're ugly
You're gone
You're you.

Yes, YOU.
