The choices I made yesterday, shaped my today

I have done wrong, I have been wronged

I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve broken hearts

The guilt I feel, will never let me go

Sinking its razor sharp teeth, into the very depths of my soul

Never to let go again, never to set me free

It feeds on my errors, only to make it worse

I’m not allowed to forgive myself; it will never let me be

When I close my eyes, I see their faces

Those I hurt, those I betrayed

I feel the foliage of death, covering my soul

I feel the edge rolling towards me, impatiently waiting for me to jump

The dark consumes the light, my heart grows cold

I push out the guilt, justifying my wrong

Only to fight with myself, losing to myself

With drooping shoulders, I return to my darkness

Say my goodbyes and make amends, without anyone knowing

I walk from my darkness, nearing the endless edge

And without a word, I jump

Release myself

Falling

Falling

To where I cannot

Hurt

anyone

ever again
