Drip

Drip…drip…drip…

One more drop will ease your troubled soul,

Once more to fill that gaping hole,

You know you’re still in full control,

Drip…drip…drip…

Each one more tolerated than the last,

How to numb your pain you ask?

What’s one more drop to forget the past?

Drip…drip…drip…

Once more to feel the sun again,

Once more to soar above and then,

One final plunge into nothingness.

Drip…drip…drip…

The dreaded night bears its teeth,

But don’t worry, you’re safe with me,

Only I can set you free.

Drip…drip…drip…

Listen closely to the sound

Of tortured screams all around,

Unending pain and fear abounds,

You want to escape? I’ll show you how,

Drip…drip…drip…

Now you feel nothing, but that’s okay,

Nothing else matters anyway,

With your will to live now stripped,

One more light is snuffed by the drip…drip…drip…
