the sweet smell of resentment - justin dooley

gothic images plague sick mind,
bloodshot eyes devoid of shine.
fairytales left far behind,
truth and myth become entwined.

pussy sores, stained fingertips,
skeletal frame, blistered lips.
vulgar states can't be suppressed,
self destruction, self detest.

sombre thoughts of piety
in moments of sobriety.
drown in drink, in drugs immersed,
shelter from this universe.

the curtain falls, the final scene
nothing left but tales and dreams,
a wasted youth, debauched, obscene.
say farewell to the libertine.
