Falling…

She can’t outrun the darkness…
She can’t escape her past…
 
She can’t repair the damage…
Those scars will always last…
 
The flashbacks forever haunt her…
Sense of shame is all she feels…
 
And though she tries so hard…
It’s become impossible to conceal…
 
Her guilt is overwhelming…
She tries to live in constant denial…
 
The tablets will numb her senses…
But only for a very short while…
 
It’s like she’s in a dark tunnel…
Where black is all she sees…
 
With no sunlight on the horizon…
And no one around to set her free…
 
As she’s been to such dark places…
She’s seen things that horrify…
 
And temptation is getting stronger…
To escape this harrowing life…
 
She knows there’s one way out…
She knows she has a choice…
 
The only way to end this…
And finally silence the voice…
 
End the day to day trauma…
Escape her cruel prison cell…
 
Incarcerated by those memories…
Putting her through this daily hell…
 
That scream a little louder…
Every dark and lonely night…
 
She used to be much stronger…
She used to be able to fight…
 
But the years have taken their toll…
Each day has ground her down…
 
Now she never smiles anymore…
Her face carries a constant frown…
 
And the decision gets a little easier…
It becomes closer every day…
 
Just to overdose her system…
And wash this pain away…
