Poltergeist


Tauntingly
Hauntingly
You call out my name
Words slide and slur as you stumble in the room
One over
Your vices alleviate your ego
And the floodgates burst
As you confess
"I'm no good and I know it"
So you're aware you're the worst
If a bottle is all it takes for self realization
Best arm ourselves with the ammunition
And leave the effects to self deprecation
Your eyes glazed over
You see but you don't
You're there but you're not
You're listening but you won't
You admit some issues
Yet nothing changes
I leave
Back to retreat
And still
Tauntingly
Hauntingly
You call out my name
