She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a handsome horse and rider pass
She say, 'That man's gonna be my death
'Cause he's all I ever wanted in my life
And I know he doesn't know my name
And that all the girls are all the same to him
But still I've got to get out of this place
'Cause I don't think I can face another night
Where I'm half sick of shadows
And I can't see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the tide comes in

So why can't I?

i want to shed my my skin
to be rebirthed in some sense of worth
Baptized in love

rather than sinking into insignificance
venting destructively or constructively

Started gambling lightly.. emptying my pockets nightly.

You can love 1
You can love 2
But when you reach 3
It's a breach.
You are alone again by default..
So who'll it be?

She complains of emptiness
A draw of the blunt, rivers of liquor.
Suppressed & oppressed
"Can death come any quicker?"
Half her soul down the drain
Her noose; preferably a spiked chain..
Drowning in thoughts
fighting last minute and now swimming to shore..
Washed up on land, attempting to stand
But no longer can..
She sits up and sees a wave coming in
Giving up and unable to rise
Arms extended towards the sky
Shutting her eyes
Waiting for the tide to come in..
The end now begins.

Was it the attention?
Or that you were always there?

What you offered out of the rest of them just couldn't compare.

When I could feel you slipping away, what did I do?
I threatened to leave and betray you.

Our love always came first..

I don't know how to do this without this hurting you...

What will it take to make you stay?
I don't want to wonder if it's temporary
I'd rather just not go on living another day.

I truly hate seeing this slowly pass away...

In love and lonely
My heart is at war, I can feel it closing.
I’m drunk on these shadows
and crossing oceans of wine for you.
I’ll keep on pretending
if our heaven’s worth waiting
For you
to be right here in my arms.
Diabla Diosa Dec 2013
I believed it was best for me then
I never said I wanted to leave
But I did end up losing tug-o-war with darkness
You haven't left me alone since
Maybe you were aware of the turmoil I was going through
Or perhaps it had been a coincidence
And you needed me for your selfish desires?
The burden of your ghostly presence does nothing but fill me with confusion
Rather than desire you alone
You are beautiful, and yet.. you mean nothing to me
But even in you're meaningless existence that resides in my heart
I feel less of a void
And finally, I can say I feel at least something..
For someone.
