My unbearable pain tries to choke my soul
Trying to take over
Trying to swallow me whole
It mangles everything that I ever believed in
Making me think
Think that I committed a shoddier sin

It tears at my heart
Till it pours crimson red
All the memories raging through my head

Being in a act, like putting on a play
Screaming the words,
That I will never be able to say

Trapped in this bleak depression state
Try to block it all out
The cold, the tears, the hate

I watch helpless as the days march on,
Watching it all wither away
To be forever gone

Draining ever last bit of happiness and hope
So hard to keep back the tears
So hard to try to even cope

Slowly creeping into each and every vein
Beating me down
Just pouring like the rain

Wonder what the future holds for me
Afraid to look ahead
Just to even peak and see

That it all just got worse from the start
Couldn’t stay in control
Everything just fell all part

They all think my life is peachy keen
They don’t know what’s going on
What all I have seen

It seems I have it made but I hide it with a smile
This feeling never meets death
It’s been lurking there for a while

Can’t escape this empty dreadful fear
Don’t leave me alone
To yell those words I hate to hear

Take me apart piece by piece
Just wishing one great day
This pain will all cease

Laying in bed to think of a cold way out
But their hearts are like stone
Love, ha, I doubt

They took away everything that meant the most
Wish that this was all over
That this would all just coast

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Is there anyone there
Anyone that cares at all

I go run away to my hiding place
To get away from everything
Away from their relentless face

All these thoughts just torture me
Leaving me here
Open here for all to see

Just cut me up with the jagged pain
Barely gripping reality
On the verge of being totally insane

    By Job! you did a smashingly good job here. by the way that firsr Job is the biblical one. you sound so much like him as i'm sure you will agree. you should aim thoes words at God instead of aiming them at me. but any way you get an A+ John Henry Loving III
