life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.

Write the label
Paint me red
Hiding deep inside my head

Watching through the shattered glass
I forgot
But that’s my heart

Hear me now
In my time of need
Killing me will spread the seed

Of deep consent
To constant dark.
The pain that hides

Within my scars.
All this I write with just one fear
That I’ll never get out of here

Oh. that actually explains a lot. I guess like being trapped inside your own body and who you're destined to be? I sort of feel that way sometimes too. :)

Wow! I love this! And..I dunno, it sounds like it's about a not-so-good relationship, but I can still somehow relate.
