Suicide of a Porn Star

by Joel Arshad

When I was young I dreamed of being a princess.
My dream was to meet and marry my prince.
But now I know these men are fictional.
They're all fucking pimps.
All I am is a sexy body.
Feelings aren't what I possess.
All I am is stupid whore.
A stupid whore without common sense.

So here I go.
Finish it is what I must do.
Knife in hand, ready to slit my wrists.
I won't call to God.
For he doesn't know I exist. 
I am a child of the devil.
Because demons possess me.
So good bye, good bye 
From one hell to another.

I dont think you are a pornstar; there's too much soul in there. Soldier on, you've got my vote.
