I'm falling slowly
Deeper into madness
Becoming obsessive
Crazed with feelings
of insecurity
I want to *****
the happiness that
I have injected into
my veins
Can I cry?
I hate seeing myself
this way
I hate seeing myself
Can I cry?
Because I want to be free
from the shackles
That bound me to this Earth

I am not sure how it really feels
To love someone with all your heart's got
I know what it's like to lose
The person you care about a lot

I have felt the bitter blade of ****
Rest softly against my collarbone
Witnessed blood run down my chest
You left me there alone

Gasping for air, victimized, sad
Trying desperately to gain back control
You swallowed the oxygen
Out of my very soul

Despite how hard I worked to breathe
Only strangled sighs bravely escaped
Changed the way I live my life
Sense of right and wrong you've shaped

You are a drug like ******
Injected into my veins
Attempt to still my addiction
This burning never wanes

I cannot resist you,
My one true friend
There with me in the silence
And the darkness,
Always waiting

You always find me,
I never know how,
When, or why,
Yet I can always smell
Your approaching presence,
Always there

You have injected me
With yourself
And a dash of myself
So that it's impossible
To get out of my own skin
Without taking you with me,
My friend

My bittersweet madness
I must find clarity
You give me yourself
In great gasping gulps
Of potent, poisonous air,
Knowing when I'm alone
Is an art you have mastered

I cannot find you,
Instead you find me,
And with your bow
And your solitary fingers
Dancing up and down
My string-beaten chest
I am played so well
My burning frustration
Is no match,
I must give in

I mustn't resist you,
My one and only love,
Like a high-strung teenager,
Maker of strange feelings,
You declare your ****** form
Out of the corner of my eye

There with me in the noise
And the loneliness of nothing
Always waiting
Always here
Always gone
Forever mine
I am yours
the "friend" I'm referring to here is every form of depression/stress/anxiety/insecurity I've had to live with in my life. I sincerely hope you will relate and enjoy.
