This darkness brings me back

My heart, dull, numb and empty

I hide my pain while my heart goes off track

I’m breathing, I’m crying


All inside my mind, my heart, my soul

And even though I’m trying

I’m very slowly dying

My wrists bleed my blood


My dreams terrifying

Slowly I’m fighting


And finally igniting


I’m tired of trying

Tired of smiling

Tired of waiting for happiness to come

Loneliness has swept me away


Life has officially betrayed

Is the end finally near?

Will I be able to give up what I hold dear?
