"Frankenstein" - Elsa Russo

 
 

I have become Frankenstein
There’s a hole in my head where the sun won’t shine
Where all the dark thoughts creep in and define

Combine refine entwine and redefine me
Until I’m as dark as I can be
And you can’t even see

That we will be the cause of my explosion
As I follow my dark compulsion
Through the haze of my expulsion

From the arms of my dear friends
Whose unending patience is at an end
Towards sicker things I do bend

And intend to swallow those pills down with a shot
Because this bottle is all that I’ve got
I could fool myself that it’s true but it’s not

But hot blood is pumping through my veins
Roaring like a hundred railroad trains
And the pounding my head it pains

And drains what little sanity I had left
As from reality I am bereft
And from my reason I am cleft

And I’m deft in the art of putting on faces
And filling in those missing spaces
Where I’m supposed to be in places

Left empty because I have become Frankenstein
There’s a hole in my head where the sun won’t shine
Where all dark thoughts creep in and define

Me
