Fragile Soul

I've had enough it feels as though the world is crumbling beneath
my feet, all around the crashing ground echoes my defeat
Misplaced and disgraced I have withered away a broken rose that never grows in soil of shattered glass, why this is no one knows
The light diminishes to darkness and like a bird with a broken wing
I've tried to fly countless times on my own but I tumble down
to the ground and cry tears of acid rain asking why oh why
have I withered away so I succumb to the pain that burns like fire inside of me, I lie barely breathing feeling my life slip away
The beating of my broken heart lies beneath my shackled feet
and the clanking of my chains echoes my defeat, I've suffered
soulless seasons that once bright light that burned inside of me
has flickered, faded and died. I look in the mirror and see
the darkened aura of my soul an unfamiliar face that once was mine
stares back at me with eyes full of disgrace I stand in shadows of this sinister place betrayed by demons once thought slain
I have nothing left you made sure of that when you left me
adrift in a sea of nothingness, how can I escape you when I can't
forget you a constant haunting of my mind I wish I could erase you from my memory. Your selfish and soulless a waste of precious time then I ask myself why am I the one who's sorry
I taste the bitter tenderness of our illusionary love story
You left me drowning in a sea of sorrow my heart my soul was yours to borrow, but now I lie here dying for tomorrow
Bleeding out slashes of sadness and crimson mist pours from my wrists. This my dear is my good bye love letter
