Toxic

I drink to heal my symptoms
But fail to kill the causes.
A broken marriage, broken dreams,
Dead end job so many losses.
It’s an endless stream,
An alcoholic tide,
That cons my mind towards suicide
That’s makes me think a day cant go by without my problem pesticide
My blood shot eyes
My toxic breathe
My shaky stance
All side affects
My constant steer into a fog of ice block cubes and alcohol
They make my problems feel resolved
But really make them more evolved.
My kidneys ache
My tongue is soar
Stomachs embalmed from alcohol
My pleasure pill, divine escape
That leaves me drowned before the gates
That leaves my body in a state
For rats and bugs to mutilate,
For life to cut and amputate,
A friend bound to intoxicate.

I'm Rolando, I also go by the poet name SkyBlack some of my work is available for viewing in the Penman lounge. FreestyleVision has given me an opportunity to express myself more, outside of the poetry. This Biography is difficult to write, I’m content on writing about almost anything but when it comes to myself I sometimes draw blanks. I’ll start of by telling my origins. I’m from New York (the best city known to man) and I still reside there today. I love music, art and of course writing. I’m a big horror film fanatic and even though this is so, my favorite movie right now is Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street. Not a true horror film, more like a gory musical, but one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. A true classic. I just saw this movie for the first time like two weeks ago and already watched it like eight times. But besides all that I’m just a average guy writing my thoughts and hoping the world enjoys what my mind concocts.
