Lost in the abyss
Something inside my head
Makes love to my contempt
My empathy is dead
No remorse to repent

The world is what I dread
Survive just to attempt
Rules broken to be read
A characterless dent

Ruthless paths that I've tread
Taught silence to exempt
My love wasn't needed
To become violent

Blood on my hands instead
The lust of what I tempt
Lifeless brevity has led
Humor in my intent

Laughing at skin I'd shred
All my hopes to preempt
The tragedy I pled
A joke not worth a cent

Bleached the face I'd painted
My scars are nicely kempt
Heart brutally tainted
Funny without consent
