Let that white angel take me away
Carry me to that happy place
For I am tired

These eyes, oh how naïve they are
What they saw was never real
Nor how I thought I made you feel
It was all an illusion

I am lost
With no signs to follow
Leaving me with no way out
But I want out
Just help me out

But you push my head in this hole
And let death take its role
When I am dead
My body shall rot in its own anguish

From me: "The Point of writing isn't so others can understand what's going on in your mind. It's so you can understand what's going on inside yourself."

By me: "Who needs you when I have these yellow lines on this road?"

I love the part "Nor how I thought I made you feel, It was all an illusion" I recently went through something exactly like this. I think everyone has.

Gerard Way: "Hey, girls, you're beautiful. Don't look at those stupid magazines with sticklike models. Eat healthy and exercise. That's all. Don't let anyone tell you you're not good enough. You're good enough, you are too good. Love your family with all your heart and listen to it. You are gorgeous, whether you're a size 4 or 14. It doesn't matter what you look like on the outside, as long as you're a good person, as long as you respect others. I know it's been told hundreds of times before, but it's true. Hey, girls, you are beautiful."

This is an awesome poem. I can relate. I like the third stanza the best. :)
