Reaper, Take Me Away

I found some peace tonight

I swallowed all my pain

Accused of telling the truth

Sifting through the smoke and lies

I found my way out free

Sitting in this dark cold room

On old wore down wood

Ticking my fingernails through the grooves

I wait.

For it to come back and consume me

I know I can't hide that long,

As I hear the wings whisper across the windows.

I know the reaper is close.

I can just see out in the clear night sky.

The Willow tree is even weeping for me in the breeze.

Shouldn't I be scared, shaken?

No, I am just too ready for this.

I can't possibly be in the wrong,

I was the one who got my innocents stripped from me.

I feel dirty, disgusting and used.

I damn near scoured my skin off, especially between my legs.

This is what I get for telling the truth,

Liar is branded on my forehead.

Trying to scream but that dirty hand covers my mouth.

Hopeless has to be the worse feeling.

I sink down even more, fading away.

All my stress just melts off my body

And I become comfortably numb

Waiting for the reaper,

to wrap me up in the black silk blanket.

Take me away... Take me far from here..
