When you wish upon a star
just to forget who you are,
what does that say
about this girl wasting away?
To keep you in my life
was such bitterness and strife.
I pushed you away from me
because you were close enough to see
To see the scars painted in my head
and the thought I wished would just stay dead.
And when I go to bury you
there's very little I can do.
You spark a light so dark within
maybe I should let you win.
But the light burns me from inside
And from your love, I run and hide.
I don't know why I am this way,
But please, don't go away.
I need this love, so little I've had
even if it feels so bad.
It's not your fault I feel this way
the earth wanted my mind to decay
I stay awake through the night.
wishing I could stand the light.
What would happen I took a step?
Would I burn and wither where I slept?
I want to try so desperately.
But I'm terrified of all that may be.
So take my hand and guide me there.
away from this world of despair,
This house is a fun-house of slaughter
Because they can't take care of their daughter
sand drifts down deserted beach
leaves float off once vibrant trees
lashes left untouched on cheek
curtains shut the bright sun bleak
endless hours of midnight sound
bruised knuckles on dark wood pound
sound of sheets sigh on mattress
second-hands strike drum and miss
misspelled words, soft spoken steps
lonely rose, the last one left
no air in two burning lungs
dead garland on mantle hung
dust dances for aimless wind
sunflowers to ashes bend
salt vacates a brackish sea
empty woods hold silent plea
never-ending days to come
deeper nights, but brighter sun
— The End —
