skin addiction

             Skin calls me by my name,
                                                  The addiction known to 
                                                          The beyond
                                           Love does not see me in flowers
                                          For the powers of illusion grant me fake wishes
                                            And lust prays for things it will not accept

                                                     To live in the moment of Flame
                                                                 Is paid in bits of soul
                                                   And lasts only briefly
                                         The void replaced by nothing more.
