On My Own…

~

There was no rhyme…
There was no reason…

The words you uttered…
Were simply treason…

Fired from your lips…
Embedding in my back…

From out of the blue…
Like some stealth attack…

That left me reeling…
Spinning out of control…

Slashing at my arteries…
And scaring my soul…

Pushing my fragile mind…
Into depths of despair…

Plunging me into darkness…
Yet you simply didn’t care….

As the world where you live…
Has quickly moved on…

With a brand new lover…
Who worships your sun…

Never looking behind you…
Only focused straight ahead…

And for all that you care…
I could be lifeless and dead…

But I stand in the wreckage…
Of loves broken dream…

With a heart so damaged…
And ripped at the seams…

Looking for something…
To break my free fall…

Clinging on to the hope…
That this isn’t it all…

And someday, sometime…
When the pain has distilled …

I can use this experience…
To try and slowly rebuild…

But until that moment…
The world is shrouded in black…

Where my mind is still shaking…
From your vicious attack…

Feel these words,
this is fucking insane…

So much to lose,
but too little to gain…

Only stolen moments,
that boost for a while…

And drunken hazes,
making you smile…

But are simply masking,
the darkness within…

And never uncovering,
just what is missing…

Something deep down,
that keeps you walking…

On the dangerous side,
hearing only Devils talking…

Watching demons play,
hidden out of the light…

In their never ending quest,
in their never ending fight…

To find some freedom and
feel at peace…

It’s what you once had,
but the beast now feasts…

He’s turning your head,
busy sowing the seeds…

And self-destruction,
is where this will lead…

Where a fleeting moment,
is all it will take…

For this to unravel and
reveal the mistakes…

And at that point,
all hope will be lost…

As all you have built,
will bear the full cost…

So feel these words,
this is no longer a game…

There’s so much to lose and
there will be so much pain…
