You can never replace me.

The burning red sensation
I’ve felt nothing like this ever before
Everything begins to crumble
My world now amounts to nothing

I extend my bruised stricken arm
My finger tips brush the hard surface of the phone
My hand begins to curl as a crunching sound screams from my arm
My eyes close tightly as I whimper

Music barricades my ears of hearing
All I can hear is escape calling my name
You can never replace me
I’m waiting for this to all be over

We’re stopped in time
Alone together
I’m not meant to be this red
I can taste the blood

My thoughts unravel into a blurry form
I can’t decipher the meaning
Your lips curl
Mine scream of pain

I feel the pressure
The body mass on top of mine
This is savage
It’ll never be over

I hear more voices inside my head
Tears fill my eyes
Nothing is clear anymore
You can never replace me

This is really good and deep. I like your use of descriptive words like "The burning red sensation" and "All I can hear is escape calling my name."
Very good, you can really paint a picture.
