Leave me be

Let my mind roam free and let me escape this misery.

Do not torture me anymore

Allow me to escape these thoughts

Stop my hands

They are beginning to have  a mind of their own.




Do not let me hurt myself

Do not let me perish

Control....self controll

Why cant you control yourself?!

Stop shaking

Maybe if i just grab the kni-NO

I will not give in

I am a powerful force to be reckoned with

I will fight

Fight until the lines stop moving

But what am I fighting for

All the ones i love and adore live no more

They would want me to fight on

But I have no more fight left

Too much stress

My life is a mess

Im ready to take that flight of no return

And gain my wings
