Dead manI was walking down the streetDead man by Vedokun
and saw a dead man there
He had bled out on the curb
nobody seemed to care
He laid still day after day
Lots of blind eyes were turned
I thought he would go away
when his body was burned

The Big Bad Wolf inside of me
is nothing but a somber, lonely puppy.
Or so I am portrayed as multiple times.
I mean...if millions of shadows shroud me and repeat the same words,
I can only dub it as true.
All I can do is continue to stand, my kneecaps refusing to allow me to bend over and silently drown in a sea of salty tears.
Why does it continue to support me when my body feels like a hundred tons and ready to
