This is the only way,
Way to escape,
Escape from the pain,
Pain that can kill.
Kill not the body -
Body is intact - but inside,
Inside your mind,
Mind and soul die,
Die so slowly -
Slowly, and you can't stop it,
It just keeps on hurting -
Hurting, except when you escape,
Escape by disappearing,
Disappearing into nothing,
Nothing like silence,
Silence that heals;
Heals but destroys,
Destroys you inside.
Inside you know,
Know it perfectly,
Perfectly like you know the pain,
Pain like this -
This cannot be healed by disappearing.
Disappearing only cuts more:
More hurt; back away,
Away from everything,
Everything that reminds,
Reminds you of those times -
Times when you were happy.
Happy, unlike now,
Now there's this,
This futile escape,
Escape that doesn't help -
Doesn't make you whole,
Whole like you were before,
Before tragedy,
Tragedy you hate -
Hate because it can't be changed,
Changed to make it fixed -
Fixed so the pain will disappear;
Disappear like you do every day.
Day to day silence,
Silence that does more harm than help;
Help is found only in silence,
Silence is your only escape,
Escape is your only way -
Way out of this pain.
