Fading From The Light
Into this darkness, I thought I was free. Could you count the minutes of joy I had now there gone never again will they come back.
Now I’m burning from the tears that stain my face that broken my heart. You know what this face show no concern no emotion playing the hard case playing the bad guy I’m playing roles acting, you want to know why? I have put myself into a role I didn’t want a role that I didn’t need I was being someone who wasn’t and isn’t still me. I need to make sure people saw what I wanted what they need to see from me that was my role, even if this role meant I had to be alone and live in the darkness yet shined so brightly before other. I’m wish to disappear from this life to go and travel into a world that had I no knowledge of I just wanted freedom and yet I kept my self chained down for if I released myself I would destroy my very being the only thing I knew and go against every moral and principles I held my self at. If I played this person I can keep my self-tied down that animal the free spirit. Oh how I want to release myself to the skies but now I’m living the role fading and disappearing is all I wanted but I’m shining is all I can do. I’m actually fading yet shinning what am I to do to hide my inner self I will do anything to keep my image like it is. But I’m fading from you because as much as I wanted my inner self to be released you wanted to leave you wanted me to be alone, how could I ever believe what you tell me? You never knew how much I wanted to leave this world just so you wouldn’t have to see me but I can only say oh well and move on what there better to do than the that. If you want to leave that not my choice but once you do I can release my self from this body even if I sound spoiled rotten bratty and none appreciating I love everything that happen for me. I knew you didn’t trust me I knew every word I believe would hurt me but in the end I want to sleep to slowly fade my last words will be good night.
