Reflections of this monster I have become
Within I am anything but numb
Pain a thousandfold of the twisted exterior you behold
Cursed by this life I’ve been sold
So many lies I was told
I tremble as my body can no longer support
Weight upon my shoulders, I contort
Trying one last time to support the sadness, overwhelmed
I wish not to continue this life, I leave the helm
Praying to drift upon the rocks, jagged
My soul, savaged
I choose to live no more
There is no anchor to halt this course
I lack remorse
For those I’ll leave behind
This note in the blood of metaphors, signed
I lost more than the love of my life
I lack the will to fight the strife
My pills tonight, my knife…
