It flows out of my heart

And into my soul

It overpowers my tongue

And comes out my mouth

It strikes the people closest to me

Hurting them

But I don't care

Because I'm in pain

This feeling won't go away

And whay should it?


Where there is supposed to be love

There is hate

Where there is supposed to be light 

There is darkness

There is no hope for release

It has worked its way into me

It is now my only friend

All the others have left me

Pushed away by my pain

My constant pain


My pain is the cause of my pain

Never leaving

Never straying

Always remaining 

Remaining true to me

While I hate it 

I love it

Because it's a constant reminder that I am alive

That I am not dead

That I have a chance to find relief from the very thing keeping me here
