Was going thru a rough patch in my life


I want to sleep

But I can't stop moving

I want to scream

But I keep barely breathing

I want to cry

Because inside I'm dieing

My soul's cut up

In thousand pieces flying

I want the truth

But my eyes keep on lying

Another blow

And I keep on breathing

Today I wonder

How long can I keep bleeding?

I'm right in front of you

And yet I feel like fading

I walk with shadows

This road without an ending

I pick them up

But they are so demanding

I try my best

To seek a happy ending

But for some reason

I think I'm over bending

I take the hits

And still I keep on walking

I write it out

I don't see my self talking

And empty walls

That tower and surround me

Bleed my fists against them

The emptiness astounds me

I need but breath

To keep on going

But so much death

Keeps me towing

I feel disjointed, empty and alone

So fucking be it

I will carry on

"This road without ending".....I'm printing this and keeping it with me. I know I've read it before but ~ but it hits me stronger at this time....
