An Attempt

How can I define to you in a rhyme 
This pain, melodically, that i acquired in time 
How can I make anyone feel what I feel? 
When all I know are lies, nothing is real  
Let me try and bring you down with me 
We’ll walk through the fires, then tell me what it is you see                       
Let me throw you to the loins blindfolded 
Stand your ground and see how long you can hold it   
Give me 18 years to diminish your worth 
I’ll be in your brain until you regret your birth 
Hide like I hid 
Only then could you feel pain that I did
