Cursed Cause

Burrow burrow
down below
my stomach churns
it's this constant failure that incessantly burns
all this pain you inflict and you'll never know

Eat me away
bone by bone
flay my mind
leave me behind
leave me struggling alone

No matter the trial
even after all this while
every droplet of blood
with my face down in the mud
to go on I must clutch to denile

Cut me
gouge me
break me again and again
stab me deeper as you call me your friend
I know that when I finally die this is all I'm going to be

It still goes on
my heart so withered with love that's gone
away into the killing fields
this is what sacrifice yields
and you'll keep doing this without thinking it's wrong

Because this is my curse
putting others first
to live undeath
hurting with each breath
and always knowing it will only get worse
