A Life Of Deprivation

I keep making the same mistake
Letting refusal be my guide
A life of deprivation
Setting my pleasure aside

I feel naked without my anger
Blind without intensity
A life of infuriation
Mind consumed with density

The hatred seeps through
It’s getting harder to deny
Resentment rises
In the blink of an eye

Shielded by paranoia
Relentless in its pursuit
A master of persuasion
Defenseless and mute

Pushing through the terror
An impossible slog
Intense concentration
Won’t alleviate this fog
