Happy but still figthing inside this where sacrifice bubbled to the surface of my blood filled pen.

Again my past self sacrifice binds me to the wall

Cutting into the surface of my skin I gently bleed

Helplessly lost in my self loathing I can't break free

So many things that I must do

But I can't due to decisions and promises I dare not break

Suffocating in happiness unable to be all the things my beating heart ask of me


Ragging anger consumes as I beat myself down

Trapped I remain to afraid to ask for forgiveness

Forever fighting with the failure I hold inside

An overwhelming desire just to end it tonight


Yet I remain soldering on

For I now have a new direction to head

Freshly guided by love's great might

I am able to make these binding chains disintegrate

Slowly I heal my bottomless scars with each baby step I make

Towards my angel who has chosen this demon over eternal bliss.
