Self-Destruction

default ©

Published: June 2015

I see you sitting there, so shiny and sharp
I wonder what it's like to be able to stop
All this pain spills onto me like a river of decay
It's not you, it is I who has a price to pay

It has only been 6 months
But still the pain grows nearer
I didn't think again I'd have to face this fear

I now feel ashamed
So disgraced and to blame
Self-destruction has become my middle name

This once was an outlet
To escape the world
Now it has become my own addiction

Pain
Guilt
Loneliness
Has built up inside of me
She is my only friend

I now feel ashamed
So disgraced and to blame
Self-destruction has become my middle name

This once was an outlet
To escape the world
Now it has become my own addiction

Pain
Guilt
Loneliness
Has built up inside of me
She is my only friend
