Someday I won't have to worry anymore
I won't have to look at what you've done
I'll cease to be a broken heart
and all the pain will be gone
I might bear it so much longer
but soon i will be stronger
and on that day i shall no longer feel
it'll be the first time in years that I've felt real.

I've been bleeding out my heart to you
and you couldn't care much less
I don't know what else to do
so Heartache, heed my request?

Bury me in dust
Carry me away
where evil like lust
won't grip my heart today

Bury me in leaves
under the big oak tree
so that I no longer grieve
the things I couldn't change

Bury me near the water
I wanna live by the sea
so that this daughter
can be eternally happy

If you won't listen to me
I guess I'll have to live this life of hate
Hate myself, hate the world, hate everything I see
All because of you who couldn't wait
couldn't wait to get out there
into the world
but you left too soon
and the world swallowed you

She's crying out, crying out, crying out for
help can't you see?
She's crying out
but she won't get help from me

So she cries out
tear my heart out
break me viciously
for all my evil doings

And bury me in dust
Carry me away
where evil like lust
won't grip my heart today

Bury me near the water
sometimes I wish
I'd been a better daughter
but wishes bring no one bliss

Bury me like an old man nobody cared about
bury me like a unborn child
but don't grieve for me like a mother would
grieve for me with careless indifference
I don't deserve an ounce of reverence

Bury me in the dark
so no one will remember me
so no one will remember my dark heart
or my dark deeds

Please, bury me..

Painful incounters with loved ones inspired me to write this piece in a spur of the moment poetic phase.
I just hope someone will understand some part of what I meant to say in the words I wrote.

This was so beautiful! I loved your message and your ending was fantastic. This was very powerfully written and left me to wonder a bit, which is a good thing! One thing that was a bit troublesome though was that you seemed to jump from idea to idea and there was no pattern or parralelism to it. You also jumped from different POV (first to third person). And yet, this was very well-written! Keep on writing and I would love to hear this in song-form (meaning with music)!
