Being Caught In The Threshold Of Regret

-

Pictures

In my mind

Boiling over

Ev'rytime

And how

Can these thoughts

Just lock me up

And toss the key?

Cornered

In the dark

I yell chants

And open up

Where

Is my mind

Gonna take me

This time?

This is what I've done

Still

Just sit here

And tare upon expression

With weightless meaning

Still being too heavy

To make a virtue of truth

Yet, these thoughts get clogged

Like butter

In my heart

I could die

And not know just why

But, for whatever reason, my cries

Storm out to the world

From deep within my soul

Asking it to stop for me

And turn around

But I know it won't do it

So the pin points of loss

Land all "on me"

Life

"Will never be the same"
