sylviasearcher

You can tell everybody, this is my song

Born bad or made this way?
Nature, nurture: the psyche’s debate
Inside there’s a girl who just wanted to love
But she’s too fucked up and just no good


Shhh little baby be a good girl
Don’t go trying to change the world
Just accept and surrender the fight
Let the demons devour you tonight

  Empty like a top shelf void of pleasure
You dug deep but never found treasure
The scars of your passivity burn forever
What about now? Or maybe it’s never

  Shhh little baby be a good girl
Don’t go trying to change the world
Just accept and surrender the fight
Let the demons devour you tonight

  Dragging my bones against their will
Still drinking the poison that made me ill
Nails slice death into my face
My red bleeds like the perfect embrace

  Shhh little baby don’t be sad
Don’t you know you were made to be bad
Just keep still, let your blood pour
And burn in hell forevermore


Shhh to the voices
Shhh to the crowds
She made her choices
Never
Or
Now?

    The superb rhyming in this raw piece of deep introspection draws out the sheer pathos of the first stanza and moves the very heart of this reader. Your way with words never ceases to amaze dear Sylvia.

      You are so kind Fay. I never feel very much like anything I write is any good.

      So thank you

      brilliant sylvia
      Not exactly a catchy wee number
      But
      Superbly written
      Emotion packed ditty
