Who I am





















(Diary of a drug addict)


I've never feared death but now i fear life in itself
I've never feared darkness but now i fear light in itself
I've never feared the world but now i fear everything
that makes me what i am,i fear my evanescent self

Save me before i burn out
Hear me as i cry out
Hold on to me,don't let me fade away
Take me to a new life,show me a new day

They told me once,you told me twice
but still i didn't listen
I knew i'd lost your faith,it was a sweet sacrifice
Here's my confession
Can you forgive me and...

Save me before i burn out
Hear me as i cry out
Hold on to me,don't let me fade away
Take me to a new life,show me a new day

I look in the mirror,now everything's clearer
That monster's not really me!
I've sold my mind,i've killed my soul
That's the difference between who i am and who i could be.

I think this is beautiful...the way it moves in between intense subjectivity to universality!!Reminds me a bit about the psychic striptease of Kamala Das....

Well written. The fear of the addict was very well described. Honesty and desperation in confession were also impressive.
