Tainted words, An illness that consumes

Written by: Tracie Edwards

Thoughts of dying inside So much pain I hide No other options in sight Nothing can stop me No longer will I pour my heart into the abyss It come's now, the darkness Suffocating the air so thick with deception Walls creeping closer, encompassing fear Blinding screams ring through my head As mercy abandons me Concealed between the pages Line after line Word after word Losing faith A piece of the whole that will always divide Seeping through my broken soul The silence of demise takes over Inside cries of surreal pain claw my flesh Tearing a once tender heart Drowning in my own bitter tears Dragging chains of broken dreams behind me Sour love songs Blah, there he said, she said shit Like an illness that consumes The ticking of the clock, running out of time Tainted is the grail of hope Now filth runs from its rim Its poison bitter sweet as it passes my lips Bringing with it the promise of eternal nightmares Never waking, forever dreaming, forever screaming All the while knowing the darkness is killing me softly...
