wilt away

I sit here in this lonely tunnel
I call my life, I’ll never be the person I once was
my future and my jaded past
Rushes through my soul and into my breath
tell myself fear is the biggest fear of them all
I cry
I’m so confused, I’ll never find myself
I’m an outcast in my own mind
I don’t wanna wilt away
I’ll never be the girl I used to be
As she screams I’m a mistake
I rush away into my own feeling of guilt
All that went wrong in that house had to have been my fault
My shadow haunts me in my depth of despair
I went wrong
So I write
Oh help me
Make me what I used to be
In this changing world
I can’t do anything right
I hate these feelings
Please heaven come crashing down
The same thing again, I’m alone and afraid
In this cold tunnel so where’s the light?
Where’s the birds?
It’s not shining and there not chirping
our galaxy needs a dose of lithium
To ever bring it back
I’ll never be the girl I used to be
Oh help me
