Blame

 

Here it comes, the guilt, the blame,

bringing along those feelings of shame.

 

Always doing something wrong --

that sense of failure goes on and on,

 

with shards of pain and swords of doubt

that run amok and can’t get out.

 

They bring me to a silent scream

that I keep hidden – it’s not seen

 

but the pressure that’s inside my head

has made my vision turn blood red.

 

My hands are shaking, my mind is set,

it’s on a course full of regret --

 

and heading straight at full force

on a collision with so much remorse.

 

The feeling lingers, so persistent,

Not giving in – logic resistant.

 

It’s not something I can shake;

it will bring destruction, make me break.

 

There’s no escape, I cannot bolt

but end up screaming, “It’s my fault.”
