I'm falling apart...

A Reason To Die.

You give them your all

Yet they still stand and watch you fall

-

It's the smile that you force to your face

When inside you're feeling like a worthless disgrace

-

Why is it that even when you try

They still snatch your will to rise up and fly

-

Why is making them happy, proud, so tough

Even when you're doing everything you can, it isn't enough

-

They still treat you like you're a stranger

Cast their eyes away, clench their jaws like you're danger

-

Harsh comments invade there speech

Insults fly like knives through their teeth

-

Each word an unexpected blow to your gut

They're the reason you find relief when you cut

-

You're thrown back and forth like a ball in a game

You surrendered to grief, and they're to blame

-

So you gave up the fight to live

Even if they asked, you couldn't forgive

-

Drop down to your knees

Let the hope in your painfully cease

-

They're supposed to love you; it feels like betrayal

In their eyes you're nothing but an epic fail

-

So from yourself you try to hide

They're the reason you turned to suicide
