Another Lie

I can’t believe it I’ve lived another lie,

my dark side won me over and I see throughout the sky.

As the lights grow dim I remember the past

when they loved me oh how long I had wished that would last.

But oh how the past slips through my fingers like water through fur,

or blood draining through my veins.

Oh how I wish I could hold it in but I can’t.

The blood is draining.

The pain is coming,

what can I do to drive back the madness of my darkest side?

NOTHING,

I am powerless against my dark side.

He is like a voice I can’t drown out.

I’m cutting like I use to but it’s not helping.

It use to bring happiness now all it brings is suffering,

it once meant release now it only means imprisonment.

My dark side has taken away my every pleasure and left nothing but pain.

I keep trying to break out.

But no matter how hard I try I always cry.

Everything I do comes back to me and I feel like I could just die.
