Eccedentesiast

Eccedentesiast (Ex—Eden—Tee—See—Ast): A person who fakes a smile

 

My days came and went like a flickering light soon to die, giving

way to dark discontent, and avoiding chances at optimism as if I was

immune to experience the pleasure of being content with life again…

 

But I never was…

 

There’s a war in my heart as I pace in a labyrinth of dark skepticism

with my dying light, looking to pray for trust but no belief system can

assist my soul, so I accompany neuroticism on my way to find a new

light to escape this misfortune’s stroll…

 

Night becomes the day, the day becomes the night…

I can’t ask for another day when nothing feels right…

 

Same shit, new numbers on a meaningless calendar, as meaningless

as this shell and mask hiding the truth that I smile yet the cracks in my

heart will find me in the bottom of the dark under…
