Something about video games? No, not at all.

Thank you for reading my words <3

Video Games

A hummingbird is in the backyard,

A hummingbird is in the backyard, her wings flutter like my heart beats.

A hummingbird is in the backyard, her wings flutter like my heart beats. You are smiling again,

A hummingbird is in the backyard, her wings flutter like my heart beats. You are smiling again, a reason enough for me to grin.

But soon it turns to silence,

But soon it turns to silence, and then hits the shrill screams.

But soon it turns to silence, and then hits the shrill screams. I have heard them many times,

But soon it turns to silence, and then hits the shrill screams. I have heard them many times, now I am sitting in a corner with teary eyes.

"Go play video games."

Jump and crawl and walk and run,

Jump and crawl and walk and run, The voices are in my head.

Jump and crawl and walk and run, The voices are in my head. Anger, pain, fear, I am losing it all,

Jump and crawl and walk and run, The voices are in my head. Anger, pain, fear, I am losing it all, losing in video games.

You love the things that don't love you back,

You love the things that don't love you back, my feelings do not exist.

The world is such a pretty place,

The world is such a pretty place, with promises that break

The world is such a pretty place, with promises that break like strings of a swing,

The world is such a pretty place, with promises that break like strings of a swing, I thought I was having fun

The world is such a pretty place, with promises that break like strings of a swing, I thought I was having fun until I fell down.

The hummingbird,

The hummingbird, she still drinks through every flower

The hummingbird, she still drinks through every flower Life would be delicious to taste from its mouth.

My mouth though,

My mouth though, it is filled with the taste of your lovers' venom.

The confusion ensues in my expression,

The confusion ensues in my expression, I am camouflaging from things that don't matter,

The confusion ensues in my expression, I am camouflaging from things that don't matter, I have to find an endpoint.

Day and night,

Day and night, we play video games.

Sweet poison sets fire to my tongue

Sweet poison sets fire to my tongue as his venom intoxicates your existence,

Sweet poison sets fire to my tongue as his venom intoxicates your existence, You cough the toxins out,

Sweet poison sets fire to my tongue as his venom intoxicates your existence, You cough the toxins out, and just like that, I fall.

Sweet poison sets fire to my tongue as his venom intoxicates your existence, You cough the toxins out, and just like that, I fall. "Game Over"

"Game Over"

But I return,

But I return, to fight this battle.

You love Video Games.
