Cumbersome Life

You're meaningful to me with glee
You're perfectly precious and free
I'm hiding in the shadow of the sun
You saved me from the devil's gun

It's a cumbersome life that I'm living
It's a cumbersome world worth giving
My eyes are as cold as ice to aqua 
My silver soul is shattered by my flaw

The flaw of living with a failure's horrid mentality
The gnawing of the worms in this jail of fatality
I need to move on from where I am at this moment
I need to get over the fact that you bear such resentment

It's unbearable to live with you in mind… left behind
I feel unstable and irritable and somewhat insecure
It's unpredictable to walk in the light, almost fully blind
I feel overwhelmed and scared, but oh, I will endure

You're significant in my life and more
You make me smile to the deepest core
I'm revealing myself in the darksome windstorm
But, you rejected me and left me in my lonesome dorm

Show your love to me with your actions,
Not your ruthless, heartless interactions
Don't prove yourself by mere words, dear
I know I'm a distress mess full of fiery fear

I've struggled to stay pretty positive in the long run
You and I used to be young and have so much fun
Believe in me in this cumbersome life of utter strife
Give me a piece of your peace and bring me to life
