I’m going on my volition

You’re not good for me
But you’re so sweet
Inside me you’ve created cavities
I’m too weak, can’t compete with the hunger
Your plans will come to fruition

I’m here on my own volition
But damn I’ve got toothache

It’s like praying whilst having sex with a saint in a sacred place and gods on it
An endearing yet massively impractical commitment to living in the moment
And fortune favours the ill-prepared mind
Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride

You’d better proceed with caution
or you might get stuck in the elixir
Designed with you in mind
made to transfix you
A powerful agent that glitters and gleams
with the glitter of meaning and hope
But are you really free?

I’m going on my own volition
But damn I’ve got toothache

One taste of you will stun
What a tragic blunder for some
