Take Nothing

by Shea Ryhai © 2009


Don't you know, I'm trying to attain,

nothing - gain nothing from you.

Blurred picture, you all seem the same,

wanting - take something for you.


I spread my heart out to feel it bleed,

you don't understand what I need.

I fill a page to break myself free,

wonder if you still think you know me...


Laughing faces, mocking voices stinging ring,

screaming - hear nothing from you.

Chocking hands, on my dreams tear off the wings,

crushing - blood rushing to you.


Weigh me down with all your bitter hate,

I tried to reach you, but was to late.

You want to blame me for your mistake,

I close my heart up so it won't break...


Fairy tales, this Life's a murder scene,

grieving - no tears deceiving you.

Happy endings, mock you behind the screen,

smiling - loneliness is killing you.


Dropping roses onto your ghostly face,

once beautiful smile leaves no trace.

This world who killed you feels no disgrace,

so many would envy you your place...


Cautious hands, reach out to grip and hold,

loving - hope rushing to you.

Against chains, our love stands so bold,

dreaming - I give believing in you.
