A heart that never opens,
A soul that never cries
And a body still and silent.
Tragically I manipulate

That the ghost of all my fears
Will evaporate
Into a bowl
Of cherry infused rum.
I'm enticed 
By the sweet flavour
Of my seductive destruction 
I hum to the tune
Of my spirit betraying
The intimate connection
Between me and myself.
