Too Late

Tears flowing endlessly Pain taking over me And the voices, they never seem to stop I want to die To you I cry And yet you turn away Sleepless nights Constant fights And yet I call this home Drugs and parties More "I'm Sorries" And yet the pain is still here Confused with emptyness A child deprived and motherless And yet I'm somewhat glad Headphones blaring Strangers staring And yet I feel invisible You showed you never cared You said you weren't scared And yet you're speechless As I hold this gun A shot through the head I fall down Lifeless and dead And now you say "I Love You" And cry For your words I had to wait You were one bullet too short One life too late.
