When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace - Jimi Hendrix

You took away my dignity;
paralyzed the fire in me
Left me so numb,
the anger's nowhere to be found
If at once I was as
courageous as a lion,
then now I am as
timid as a mouse,
but somehow I'd rather be
with someone and miserable,
than lonely and without
My reason's clouded by the good days we have,
although they are, far and few; forced and fake
There's no hour that goes by that
I don't think of her;
What she has and
what I don't
My friends convince me that it's
not my fault,
they say,
I'm falling apart, and it's all because of you
You broke us, but what's worse is that
you broke me.

that was really really good! it's so realistic. it's a bit like my piece, "The inspiration has left me."
