These elusive dreams, When I awake,
All my hopes with them, They take,
And fade into the very heart of my mind.
Nightmares then, Take over me,
And leave no room, For me to see,
For they leave this reality safely behind.
I no longer dream when I'm asleep,
The hope I had no longer i keep,
My reality begins to unravel, unwind.
I never wanted to feel, or be this way,
But I can't take this pain, every day,
Would it be so bad? To fade away?
I balance on the edge of a cliff that's steep,
The waters below are dark, and deep,
Do I crawl back to safety? Or dive off the end?
I'm in a cave, dark and wet,
But there's a light, my path is not set,
Do I stay in darkness? Or do I ascend?
I make the cuts, and the blood runs red,
It pools darkly around me on the bed,
For I had chose to no longer pretend.
You all made me feel, and be this way,
I could no longer take the pain, every day,
It won't be so bad... To fade away...
Being dead wouldn't be so bad,
You don't have to worry, about the problems you had,
So this is how it feels to die.
A blade in hand, my skin I attack,
There is no room now, for going back,
And I don't even want to say goodbye.
A single tear, runs down my cheek,
My fate is dark, and yet not bleak,
I smile as I breathe a last, contented sigh.
This is how it's been, this twisted way,
For so long I've felt this, everyday,
And now it's all gone... I fade away...
