A Tortured Writer

from Red by Halloween Jack



Breath is shallow and the voice is thin
Face is riddled with hurt and sin
But in these days of darkness
Is where real happiness lies
Such pain I sympathise

Here lies a tortured man
Such faint praise with which he's damned
But he won't whore himself
To his detriment, he needs no encouragement

He writes in hollow verse
His great mind's been cursed
Cause joy's a bitter pill
And pain to him is such a thrill

Holds no care for morality
And loathes his self pity
But this anger, satisfies him
As no lover could give him

Washed up is how this man feels
The more he aches the pleasure
And egotism is found in pills
And then before god, he will kneel
Send to hell for this man deals
In pleasure from pain he does kill
Himself for pain is such a thrill

Pain to him is such a thrill
