Me (I am alone)

Can't you see
The pain in my eyes
But this is me
And my life.
If you hold me close
You can hear my heart
It cries more than most
From being torn apart.
After every breath I take
After every fight I witness
I ask why must I awake
Will I ever conquer forgiveness
Can you ever truly
Forgive without forgetting

I am lonely.
My life I am abandoning.
From pain I am running.
Even though these tears are falling
I will never look back.
All in all
I have one question to ask.
Would you still catch me if I fall
Maybe one day you will see.
This is how I live
