I am falling
And no one can save me from my only enemy: myself
I can no longer see the wink of light at the end of the road
It has been put out by my only enemy: myself
In my worthless heart, I bleed to death, slowly willing myself to die
But death does not obey
I am the only one who can save me, but I don't want to save myself
Because I simply have no reason to live
My soul is being kidnapped by my only enemy: myself
Stolen
Taken away 
and being slit into a million tiny shards of what used to make me and break me
I hold my breath, once again trying to die
But death does not obey
My world tumbles down, everything in it collapsing
All but my only enemy: myself
I look at the end of the road, straining my eyes for that wink of light that I so desparatly need
But I see nothing but darkness
So I look up to the sky to see if the stars are on my side of this never ending battle
This battle between me and my only enemy: myself
The stars and the moon are no longer there
They have left me in my time of need
I needed them
Once again I am falling
And I am unable to be saved because the fall is so long
and so empty
I keep falling and falling
But I don't hit ground
The fall makes me feel happy
But I anticipate the crash to earth and it ruins that feeling
That feeling that I so desperately need
Anything is better than this falling
Death is better than this falling
But death does not obey
I made the choice to fall, unknowing at the time
I was naive and jumped without thinking
No
I didn't jump
I was pushed by my only enemy: myself
The fall never ends, and I wish I could save myself or kill myself, either one will do but it's too late for either. 
I don't know what life is anymore, what is used to be
Yet, I continue to fall and fall and fall
Hoping I could just hit the bottom so I could at last die
But death does not obey
It never does
