What didn’t kill me

Didn’t make me stronger

I don’t know if I can hold on much longer

My reality is a nightmare

I know they say life isn’t fair

But I’ve never known pain this hard

How can I get back to the start?

 

For the past few months I have been living in a hole

I don’t know how long it will take

To make me feel whole once more

Will I ever defeat this war?

 

As I take hold of the blade

I am no longer afraid

I watch as my blood pours down the drain

And washes all of my sins away

Just one more cut to keep the demons at bay

 

But when it’s all over

I am still not alright

And the demons keep me awake all night

As I eventually drift off to sleep

I hope that I never wake up

Because all my life does is wake me weep

And all I ever do is screw things up
