Wondering if you still care

I believe I've been heard in the awakening of silence
I relieve the sorrow from your tongue of decadence
You've been hurt and I can feel it to the deepest core
You're not alone, so don't say no one cares no more

Sore to the touch is how I am right now
Your carelessness is hurting me somehow
I need you to know that you're lost, 
But you are not alone at any cost

I got to start going above the surface of your lies
I ought to think twice before waving my goodbyes
I feel like I am going under your waves of doubts and all
I'm not a failure and I can survive by standing oh so tall 

I want to move forward from where I am at this moment
I want to forget and forgive my past and this reminiscent
That repeats in my brain for hours on end
There is some hope beyond the river bend 

You stare at me as I fall a fall of I've-truly-lost-it-all…
I am shivering with fear and colliding against the wall 
My knees are bleeding with remorse
How did all this mess get out of course? 

How did we get into this mess in the first place? 
Mend me with your beauty kiss stains of grace
Collapsing into the troubles of my lonesome days
Collapsing into the band wagon of my old ways

Help me 
Kiss me back to life
Have mercy 
Upon my life of strife

I ache and I break 
While you rise and shine
I break for your sake,
Drunk off of my woeful wine

You didn't mind my hurt
You only wanted comfort
You didn't mind my hurt
You only wanted comfort

Your embers of fervor give me more than I can take
Enjoy the swim into my lament lake for my own sake
You are a thread in the entangling thorn bush 
You give me dread, yet a sympathetic push 

-Inspired by the song Stitches by Shawn Mendes-

This is so good, the angst is palpable.
