The Key

My name is unheard
it is forever unspoken
never said is this word
because my heart is broken
glass shards are impaling my skin
it feels so good to me
to feel the blood flowing out from within
to feel the scars that will forever haunt me

Fading to black and my eyes are heavy
my heart slows its beat
and I know I am ready
to finish this feat
I have gone out
on a chariot of fire
because I have no doubts
and death is my last desire

As I take it all in
my breathing slows down
I let the darkness win
and I go without a sound
no one seems to notice
that I'm lying on the floor
all I had left was this
this key to my hearts door

You could've taken it
I offered so many times
you just didn't commit
to all of my rhymes
you didn't accept
what I offered so freely
but my memories of you are still kept
in this alternate realtiy
