Did you just rip that off?
Band aid that,
Your skin's still soft,
Look at this,
All battle scarred,
Don't want to hurt you,
Don't want to leave no mark,
They say life's all breezy,
But I ain't got enough heart,
Left to set free,
Run away angel,
While you can,
See these scars all down my hands?
Bite them,
Scratch them,
Don't bow to my demons,
I fight them,
And this pain is how I know,
I'm still alive,
Still in the show,
Take a bow now,
Don't let go,
Hang on to that crown,
You're a queen,
So let them know.

There was the time,
When we said together forever,
Didn't we?
But forever is a long long time,
And we were young,
Naive and love,
Or what we thought it was,
Had us all hung,
Out to dry like laundry in the sun,
Forever was in the mail,
But you just weren't the one.

Have your way

I should have seen it coming
Cliched as it sounds
The walls were closing in and
I didn’t learn to run
Didn’t learn to breathe on my own
Pinned down under illusions
Of a fairer trade
My heart
For your whiny greed
Unsatisfied despite your luxurious fate
I was content to exist
And you were content to make
My personality fade
I was your little pet
In your cruel gold cage
While you weaved your endless
Wants around my head
Like poison ivy in my dreams
They made me dream in nightshade
And you
Bully that you are
Were simply content
To let me drown
In the lake of guilt you made
Waters closing over my head
No sounds
‘Don’t speak’ you said
You would have your way
