I know the truth.

I know what's happening to us.

I know you know too,

But we're too afriad to face it.

We've been fighting for so long,

That we've forgotten what it is we're fighitng for.

Lost in the darkness,

Trying to fight our way out.

But always losing the battle,

For our sanity.

We are both fighting in the same war,

But sometimes soliders get wounded,

And must give up the fight.

We were cornered,

About to die.

We were drowning in our pain.

Suddenly, out of norwhere,

A lifeboat came to our aid.

But it had room for only one.

I was dragged aboard,

Forced to leave you behind,

Wacthing you drown in your pain,

As I was pulled to safety.

I was forced to leave you behind,

In all your pain.

Wacthing as enemies surrounded you,

Too many to fight off.

This war had caused us nothing but pain.

It has torn us apart,

From the inside out.

Making us forget what's really important.

Now it's been so long,

Since I was pulled from the fight.

But now I now what I must do.

I have to go back,

And search for you.

I know you're strong enough to make it,

Hold your position until I can return,

And pull you from the deadly waters.

I've got to be strong enough,

To swim across this ocean,

Of pain and sorrow.

I have to swim to where you are.

But as I draw near the water's edge,

More enemies appear.

They surround me,

 Blocking my path to you.

So in order for me to save you,

I must first fight off my own enemies.

But I am already so weak,

I don't know if I can fight them all off alone.

I need your help.

I need someone to watch my back,

Like you used to,

And I'd watch yours.

If only these enemies,

Weren't keeping us apart.

I was pulled from harm's way,

Forced to leave you behind.

Only to be surrounded once more,

By the same enemies,

That haunted me in the past.

Only I know now they are real.

They aren't merely in my dreams,

As they once had been.

These enemies are all too real,

And stronger than I could have imagined.

Will I be strong enough to fight them all off,

So I can return to save you?
