Plain And Truly Lost


The demons in the water

__are swimming

"Take me down"

__says the clown

I'm opt for a new beginning

Something more stupid than ever

I would go thee extra mile

To turn the Tv. dial

To a station much more pleasant

__then fried fish

____fucking the sword fish

______while hammer fishes

________fuck the snails

Where, driven into madness

__gets caught up in nobody else's

____world, but ours

If only I could forget you

But I can't

I'm trapped to realizing

We cannot be cool again

No matter what I do

And I can never be in your life

It's a shame

There is no use

If only I can forget about

All the days that have came and went

But forever, I know I can't

And how this heavily dripping blood

Splatters to the ground

__as rice cakes burn in thee oven

____causing my whole world

______to crumble like an never ending

________sadness that breaks

__________and breaks my heart

My whole world is eternally damaged

And a future without you

__is all I can live

As I miss you awfully

__I carry the burden of things

____just not ever to be the same

I can't write on your wall

Am I even a friend, at all?

I just know

I'm out

Of your life

And I know, forever

I won't become

A part of you

As saying goodbye

Gets hard to do

It helps to know it goes

Without saying

Seeing as how you never said

That to me

And you won't call

And I won't, as well

Maybe I'll text

And then again I will get

Another reply not given to me

Whatever I did

It must have been too much

We must just be done

What else am I supposed

__to believe?

You won't talk to me

Like how you always used to

Make time for to do

I only know I lost you

So plain and true
