"I hope the exit will be joyful, and I hope never to return" -Frida Kahlo

I'm not asking you to understand me
Rather, stand by me
Don't let me drown in myself
Keep me here
Don't let me go
Despite my actions
And cruel words
I don't want to go back
The pit
So easy to fall in
Drown in the darkness
Its infinatly harder to climb out
Brick by brick
Hoisting myself up
Always something pulling on my leg
Beckoning me to stay
Influencing me to stay
Arguing the darkness isnt so bad
Stay in the dark long enough
Your eyes will adapt
I can feel it
Temptaion; breathing down my neck
Whispering offers of consolation
If only I indulge
Give in to the blade
The real pain will dissapear
If for only a moment; peace
My head will stop thudding
The tears will stop running
The breathing will slow
The shaking stops
The crimson valley fills my skin
Flow, flow
It's so difficult; this war
The fronteirs are my mind
Keep your arms around me
Don't let me go
Save me from
