An introspective piece discussing heartbreak, abuse and healing.
I was told, “You’ll never change”
And the truth is, I never had to
Jumped the track, to try to please
Looking back, it’s kinda sad too
How I, let myself die
Eradicated, all but cracked through
Yet my heart, still it beats
Set the anthem, to impact you

Life, it can be hard
Can be a struggle, overwhelming
Sights and dreams, can discard
Leave your heart, angered, yelling
And the mind, it confides
To the bribes, so compelling
Lose yourself, lose the kind
Then you’ll find, darkness dwelling

Am I blind, mastermind
In a Labyrinth, ever-winding
I’m a tramp, light the lamp
It’s to dark, and I am hiding
Try to find me, try to bind me
Douse the light, it’s too blinding
Feel the hands, to the grind
I am buried, but I’m fighting

Lift this coffin, lid imposing
Air is thin, suffocating
This divorce, like a flower
Withered now, for the taking
Rest In Peace, the deceased
I’ma cease, in this hating
Buried me, in a sea
From deceit, I’m escaping

The unease, of Achlys
A goddess, of the poison
Misery, chasing me
I’ma flee, you annoying
All the hounding, all the drowning
All surrounding, I’m avoiding
Slithered servant, you perverted
You’re a burden, not worth toiling

Why you call me, why you chase me
Why you fake me, was it worth it
Break a heart and, then discard it
Á la carte it, then abort it
Go away now, fade away now
I’ma pray now, find my orbit
Find my peace, no more beasts
Easy street, mind the door shut

Turned the page, brace the waves
Face the unknown, life’s aquatic
Tides are coming, tides are going
Lighthouse showing, through the optic
Moving on and, getting older
I am bolder, count my losses
On the high ground, I’m alive now
Watch me shine on, so symbolic

Past is past, cannot change it
Can I learn though, bet I can
Learn to live, learn to laugh
Learn to love, once again
Sun is rising, light is shining
Hope’s displaying, who I am
Opened eyes I, see the future
And the view is, an amend
