What I AM

Silent screams of horror
keep me from loving you
so I keep to myself
wondering if you are true

You've found the nothing
that I am
you've crushed my dreams
and keep me still

You've turned the fire
into smoke
you caught my breath
and made me choke

You drive away the heroes
and make me stay in pain
you think your doing good
but your making me insane

so I stay in silence
hoping you will change
but i am waiting for nothing
you are always the same

you ask me what i am
and i know not what to say

I am a heart of thorns
I am broken and unfixable
I am only a memory
therefore i am torn

I am nothing but a lost cause
you do not weep for me
I am just your shadow
that is full of flaws

I am a wound in your side
an item you can't return
I am all but nothing
why won't you let me burn?
