Escape

Written by: Priscilla Cruz

You sought comfort in a 
cigarette
You sought help in the drink
You sought hope in a knife
You sought love in giving 
yourself up
You searched and longed and 
pleaded for an adoration that 
wasn't yours to keep
You looked up
Stretching your arm, reaching 
with your hand
For some sort of salvation
Even if it came at a price so 
high
The price, of your heart
You held on tightly to a thread 
that was always unraveling
It snapped and now all that 
there is
Is to simply fall
Just falling, falling, and falling..
You hit the ground, and lie 
there in your own despair
You close yourself off, curling 
up in silent screaming solitude
You hide the quick drip drop of 
tears
The agonizing pain
The mocking shame
You build up the walls that you 
come to call friends
You shut everything out
You left everyone cold..
They tried and tried but you 
didn't respond to anyone.
A silver wall can't save you 
dear
A golden castle will not fill the 
emptiness you now breath
I'll carve this into the wall until 
you see what is here
My time is up..
I have to say good-bye
After I'm ripped away
After I'm gone
After there's nothing left
You'll see a ray
It'll surround you in a heart-
shaped light because even in 
what you're going through
You're not alone.
Call my name, (and I'll hold the 
pieces of your shattering heart 
together)
Call my name, (and I'll sing 
your song with you)
Simply ask me that one 
question
And I'll never leave you.
