Walk away

Cheap wine dimmed in the candle light thinking my life's bleak like her dreams keep cramping my sleep and I've had it with uncleaned teeth clamping when they bite like a dog with a lock jaw slamming tight. Remote needs batteries check her sock draw and I'll find a rabbit with a new batch of soft **** man will like. Is she into man or d*** Bet you a dime she likes both now we're slapping high fives and I try and cope. Leaving alone this whole mess that she has evoked. I'm only mentioning sexuality as a joke, I know she likes men, she likes those who can fly a fist. Getting high and pissed meant we'd f*** first then fight and kiss. I'm acting like a scientist leading this experiment where she became the guinea pig feeding my intelligence. Sent as a saviour they processed her papers. I almost fled home from her reckless behaviour. The police came arrested her later and she became exactly what they meant by it's heinous. It's crazy we did time from flipping out big time, no big crime though still kept remanded for street fights. Now I'm out of D side nothing can hold me down so where's my polar cloud sound of shadows feet creeping up. Strengthening the tone of the voice saying keep in touch. I may have won the battle though I lost what I'd always loved. Calm before the storm where I'd walk with my wolf we'd strut. Talk tongue in cheek to those speaking some awful stuff with a forked tongue and a weak performance, just fools who wanna reak the rewards for some cheap decorum. My requirements particular it's the mind I'm born with. Giving sincerity, acceptance, respect and integrity. Serenity prayer on my ribs so remember me. I've been through some hard times in hell and kept going till I past it. The ***** tried to harm my existence and this time I stayed calm got her evicted. This is one minute of my story so listen up. Failures not fatal, success ain't permanent. It's not giving up what matters and I'm sure of it.
