You don't look out the window,
don't see time going by.
Never know how many hours pass,
while you just lay alone & cry.
Breathing heavily, you whisper,
through a river of cold tears,
"I'm a ******* failure,"
silently, no one hears.
Your heart beats an unsteady rhythm,
pounding in your chest.
With your head in your hands,
there's no time to second guess.
You look at yourself in the mirror,
& blink away the tears that fill your eyes.
You bite your lip & look away,
at the same time, a part of you dies.
You notice a strange emptiness,
one that you've never felt before.
You clench your fist as you realize,
you feel your life is just a chore.
You click your knuckles,
& wipe your eyes.
You're tired of living,
you're tired of lies.
& with a shattered mirror,
& a bleeding fist,
you hold that blade
against your wrist.
As you push it into your flesh,
you ask yourself why.
"Why am I hurting myself?
Why should I die?"
But there's no time for questions,
you find yourself screaming.
The guilt is in your blood,
you wished you were dreaming.
The sound of your blood,
as it drips to the floor.
You're slowly going insane,
sickened by the gore.
But still, you cut deeper,
showing no emotion.
For your killer habit,
you have so much devotion.
You stop yourself for a second,
knowing that you've done enough.
You're bleed out of the anger,
& the life you find so tough.
You reach for your thread,
& stitch up your wrist.
& see that the windows
are shrouded with mist.
You've finally had enough,
you pick up your blade.
You step outside & leave behind
that tortured past you've made.
You run down to the river,
& stare into the freezing stream.
Into it, you throw the blade,
hoping this isn't a dream.
You drop to your knees,
& with your head to the floor,
this is the end of it all,
you've walked out the door.
You stare into the water,
& see a figure approach behind.
You hand quickly covers your wrist,
as thoughts race through your mind.
You turn around to gaze into the eyes of beauty.
The figure, he hold you in his blood stained arm.
You feel so comfortable with the stranger,
you feel so taken by his charm.
He too throws his blade into the river.
"Have you had enough of it too?"
You nod & close your eyes,
wondering if this is really true.
He holds your hand,
& kisses your cheek.
You breathe in deeply,
his touch makes you weak.
You shake your head,
& you're back in your room.
Your wrists have stopped bleeding,
& you hope to dream again soon.
With tears in your eyes,
you wished that you were able,
to go back into those dreams,
to again, *see your angel...
