Promises Are Dust

"I promise"
F***…never mind
Promises mean nothing anymore

Based solely on how many
I personally have turned my back to
My promises mean as much as
Dust in the wind,
I no longer have my credibility
To stand on, because
I'd be in a world of nothing at that point

How do I convince you…
I can't, honestly I can't
"You'll just have to trust me"

It's a lame sentence
Because I'm not to be trusted
Not with myself
Nope, never alone

F*** I'm against a wall
Completely trapped
Encased in my own scars
I'm the only one who got me stuck here
I hate myself for that
To make no one trust me

I hate myself more than they ever will
I hope they know that

But I've always known
I would get stuck,
I ignored it.
Told myself,
I'd deal with it when I had too
Well pretty little girl
Stop running
You're done,
You have to face it now

My inner daemon
Whispers,
"Oh, no I don't."
And I'm off in another tailspin
Shedding blood at every turn

I'm not sure when this will end
When I'll get stopped
Because, hell I'm not going to stop myself
