Addicted To Pain
As I’m crushed by the hand of fate,
hope collapses, then falls away.
For abandoned to fear and hate,
an emptiness consumes my day.
Walking blind, convinced I can see,
anxieties tear me apart.
For pounding at what defines me,
cascading hurts fracture my heart.
Alone in life bullied by fears,
my dreams fade and quickly depart.
And I drown in the wake of tears,
as the pangs of loneliness start.
Forsaking the dreams of my youth,
I question why my birth took place.
For when lies circumvent the truth,
it's like the whole world's in my face.
Aching, yet addicted to pain,
I'm betrayed by those I call friend.
And subjected to their disdain,
I thank God that life has an end.
