Bones roast on an open fire
Bile boils in a cauldron
Grind my teeth to dust
Add a pinch of despair to the potion

Twitch in my eye
Tug at my skin
Gnaw in my stomach
Bitter tongue in my sour mouth

Nails ripping off skin 
Shivers of disgust 
Pangs of envy 
Doubts warp into distrust 

Tar builds up in my arteries 
Steadily spreading through my body
Constricting my motion 
Restricting my expression 

Viewing the world through candy-green lenses 
Regardless of the pretenses
I am defenseless 
Ensnared by my invidious senses
