I cried while you were gone.

       		          The        	t
                                                             	 they	 s t u n g       my cheeks.

       		         It left a trail, a crimson water

                   					                     in a pool of former me.
             And I wallowed in the thought

                                                                    that this is what it is.

     And no   m
                             r        where I find myself,

                                      The control 	     e v  a   d    e     s    		     my grip.

And I try to fight
                      and fight
                                    and fight.
                                                                      I try to just forget.

                    The thoughts I find inside my head

               			                                     Are too hard to relive.
                               I refuse to be a slave,      
                                                                               to the pauper and the King.

                  			 I lay my weary head    d


          Not ashamed, but struggling.
