Parasitical Love

It's about how people adore you when things are going well, but are content to leave you for ruin when things go wrong

The tide’s beginning to turn and now the sun smiles at me

For the first time in many years I can feel at ease

So many begin to crawl out from the darkness

Beckoning me to share a story or a favour to please

 

The clouds start to break and how I’m thankful

To finally start living a life without pain, without grief

Eyes and faces once unfamiliar smile at me, so wonderful

The crumbling pain of loneliness turns now to relief

 

Fair weather, they want what I never had

Parasites, every one of them repulse me

But their plastic love is addictive, ensnaring me

A shallow feeling’s taking over me

 

The clouds begin to swarm, the rivers flood to destroy

A dozen hands and eyes now seem only as ghosts to me

Rats from the wreck, the escape plans at last deployed

I’m just another toy, to love and discard as they please

 

The darkness swirling around me, a whirlpool pulling me deeper

The supply cut away from me, I can only feel the fall

No more tender sense of touch, only the grasp of a reaper

Smashed down by titan’s takedown, I cannot begin to sprawl

 

Fair weather, they want what I never had

Parasites, every one of them repulse me

But their plastic love is addictive, ensnaring me

A shallow feeling’s taking over me

 

It’s hard to hoard the treasure

But harder to live when it’s gone

I knew it couldn’t be forever

But if only I knew the pain to come

 

Fair weather, they want what I never had

Parasites, every one of them repulse me

But their plastic love is addictive, ensnaring me

A shallow feeling’s taking over me

The End
