Lament of my heart
sang by my soul.
Remarks of the hurt
visible through thy hole.

This pain in deadly fatal,
my aim is to have it 
the agony is getting 
damn you've hurt me and 
now i'm toxic.

I hide my pain and 
behind my wide smile.
I avoid watery eyes
by remindin myself 
about what we used to 

I'm torn deep inside 
my rib cage.
My organs are interrupted
by the cuts your 
has caused to my heart.

My patience and 
perseverance seem 
to lack due to the damage
you done in my soul.

I bleed the reaction
i do when my blood
circulation is disturbed
by the blood clots caused
by the pain you've caused 

My brain aches,
my heart is wounded,
my mind is swollen,
my soul is over stitched

I'm torn and nothing 
can be done to fix me up,

I give away my boots,
hand in my membership 
hang my jersey,
leave the field 
and quit the game...
