Lust Is My Disease Poem by Jesse Bauer

Lust Is My Disease

Rating: 5.0


(Verse I)
I can taste your lips
At my finger tips
Though you’re still so far away
I can feel you every day
Tragic endings now
It’s hard to live without
Your breath upon my skin
And the way we used to sin

(Bridge I)
And so I whisper
It’s true that love has left me
But it’s lust that leaves me empty
And sometimes I scream
It’s true that love has left me
But it’s lust that leaves me empty!

(Chorus) The breathing, the moaning, the screaming
Was always the best part
The lusting, the loathing, the beatings
Broke everything but my heart

(Verse II)
Drink another down
Drink enough to drown
But still I feel you breathe
Desiring your reprieve

Passion at its end
Dead, forgotten
Now it all means nothing
And always, it means nothing

(Bridge II)
And so I whisper
It’s true that love has left me
But it’s lust that leaves me empty
And sometimes I scream
It’s true that love has left me
But it’s lust that leaves me empty!

(Chorus)

(Breakdown)
Oh, a life without a heart
Isn’t easy to conceive
But your body is an art
And lust is my disease

(Chorus x2)

Oh, I’m empty now.
