Cold Like Your Father

Hard, hard shell.
Hard shell;
Outer layer
Darkness hate bitterness
All one, wrapped up;
Build it up, build it close; it's you.
Bitterness anger vile anger is it hard or just anger is it real or just a front is it closed off or hardness
Is it real hate?
Hate such hate such sadness such anger stupidity self loathing
"Be bad be bad"
Night howls dark circles mean eyes cocaine in the morning eyes are dark, dark as hell
Don't look don't touch don't speak
I won't respond, I just think,
Think of the dark dark night I live in.
