Climax

Destiny Denied

My name is Max. I have suffered from severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder for the better part of 10 years. Well, actually my whole life. I have an amazing story littered with trial and redemption, from being homeless in a park, starving in the wilderness, going through OCD rehab with a celebtrity,…






I died inside
Before I even cried
The pain it took
To rewrite my book
Will never subside
While it walks away with my bride
And the devil, stride for stride
Can't even remember my pride
The universe promised, and lied
And no matter how hard I tried
At the last second, my brain was fried
The wells of hope were dried
A lifelong purpose denied
A day away, never got to thrive
The best friend we'll ever know is Survive
Except now we're barely alive
The dread and despair have built a hive
Queen Bee-trayal sets honey aside
To feed her victims, before she serves their demise
So they can suffer and shrink into subservient flies
Serving only to think of what could've been of their lives
Had the day not come when their tongues were tied
And the love they felt could've finally been spied
And at their destiny they could've finally arrived.
