Because of you

Because of you:
Because of you, I cry at night
Because of you, I dream in black and white
Because of you, I see no light
Because of you, I sleep with fright
Because of you, I step with ease
Because of you, I forget what’s right
Because of you, I have one wish
Because of you, I have these scars no one can miss
Because of you, I go too far
... Because of you, I slowly freeze
Because of you, I dare not scream
With you, you make no amends and you shed no tear at my end
As I end what you have already taken
I slowly slip out my last words
“You didn’t win.”
