Failure and disappointment fill the tense air
And I can distinctly smell it
Looking through thick clouds of deception
It drags on like a boring reception
And no, it’s not inception
But shattered hopes and dreams
Things that were only on the line
Have finally collapsed to their doom
Well, maybe it takes some pain to know happiness
Sometimes it takes some failure to achieve success
Maybe my mistakes will teach me something after all
Done trying to please all; time to tear down that wall
I need space to pace about my worrisome thoughts
And stress my night away once again
Because I never learn it seems
And I’m melting under life’s burning beams
Put on the spot, I’m always caught
And left carelessly to rot
But I’ll find a way someday
To fix this reoccurring mess
Maybe, I’ll find the concoction
The cure to this illness within
And maybe I’ll fall helplessly
Again as I try to foolishly believe
In something I don’t know
Whatever the case, I still find myself trapped
Stuck in a tangle
Awaiting my doom…once again.
