Sitting here I speculate

Why it’s all gone wrong

 

I am alone, in this place

But how did I arrive?

 

Emotions are all I feel

Sadness, anger and frustration

 

As time goes by, I hurt you more

I don’t know what to do

 

The pain is high but I can’t tell

How do I get free?

 

It’s now I’m scared of what might happen

You know just what I am thinking

 

What I’ve done, it transpires

Slowly gaining sight

 

I am scared to say, scared to tell,

What is on my mind

 

I go to speak these words of silence

But nothing’s making sense

 

Where am I? Let me go

How do I escape?

 

These clouded visions hold me back

I’m blinded by the fear

 

This pain, this dread and all the blame

Will it ever stop?

 

Here I am, with you again

Sitting face to face

 

I want to say, to tell, to share

With you, my painful story

 

For what I’ve done, I feel regret

For this, a price I pay

 

Blade to skin, once again

The blood I shed; a toll

 

I didn’t mean to do this here

It was just an urge I had to feed

 

So here I am, yet again, sitting in this place

The clouded visions that I can see, must surely be the price…
