Sliding the Pain



Little by little I'll erode with disease
I'm stuck in the middle down on my knees
Though I try to be happy I'll never achieve
I'm all alone so I'll die while you grieve

Accepting the past like a map to begin
I'll assume all the hatred with a bitter grin
A matter of principle to embrace this sin
I'll always fail so why try it again

All of your intentions won't stop how I'll feel
Taking never giving my love you will steal
And if you deny it I'll make it seem so real
Tricking with smiles as my soul I will kill

Did you think I would stop and make it all right?
Did you believe all those lies I spun in the night?
Did you know I would finally turn from the fight?
Did you seem me changing in the dawn's early light?

If I'm stuck in this pattern then I'll fall down
I'll never stop being this painted clown
Wearing smiles like make-up over the frown
I'll fall in the ocean and let the pain drown

When the end is here I'll feel no shame
Open my mouth and let the madness reign
Laughing in the water I'll go slowly insane
Embracing the darkness I'll slide all the pain




I enjoy reading comments from my readers,

so if you've enjoyed reading my writing,

write a little something for me.
