I've used so many words and strung together so many letters
I fear I may have suffocated the alphabet
The vowels scream so loud
As the consonants struggle against the literary chains I've bound them in.
It's a fight that'll last till the end
A fight until my very last breath can breathe the last lie
And maybe one day the truth will be spoken by one brave enough to dare
The run on sentences have wrapped themselves around my bleeding wrists, and tightened against my throat
I have started the war
Bleeding the truth as I swim in the crimson puddles of lies
Its all becoming too much
I feel like I might just drown in your eyes
The faded photographs have done no justice
You were perfect in life
And now your immortal 
In death.
