My Heartbeat

Every minute
I try to forget
everything that's happened
Because every second
that I remember
I crack a little more

Oh, I'm beyond tears
Even though they take over
When I'm not careful

Oh, I'm past pain
I travel in a world of numbness
Where pain is a memory of the past
And I am lucky to feel
Anything at all

Oh, I have moved away from the Hunger for life
Life is merely a dream
And hunger is a delicacy

Oh, I have forgotten people
They only spit hate at me
And tear me down,
Sewing me into the earth
So that I can't cry for help
Because my mouth
Is filled with dirt

Oh, I have made myself nothing
Degraded myself until
My weight on the scale
Brings up not numbers,
But words that describe
My barely-there state

Oh, I have almost disappeared
The only proof of my
Invisible existence
Is my heartbeat
