Breathe

Inside of her mind she tries to scream
As tears on her face begin to stream
But no sound is uttered from her lips
The breath from her chest this moment strips
Suffocating, she falls to her knees
As strength from her body quickly flees
The moment passes, panic subsides
But the dull ache within still resides
A deep jagged breath she slowly takes
As the nightmare fades and she awakes

Falling Within

No one to catch her as she falls
And within her the darkness calls
A soothing lullaby in her ear
Making her forget all of her fear
Within herself she’ll fall deeper
The walls outside growing steeper
To live her days in this solitude
Where her pain and fear can be subdued


Too Late

I wish you’d just hate me for all I am
I can’t keep living a life that’s a sham
Feigning indifference is wearing me down
The sorrow inside threatening to drown
The waters get deeper with each little lie
And the fire inside continues to die
So walk away now before it’s too late
And all that you are is all that I hate


The Last Fall

Broken and beaten, she tries to regain
Balance within she struggles to maintain
She stumbles and falls along this path
Trying to outrun all of Fate’s wrath
But her wounds too many for time to heal
The pain so deep that it’s all she can feel
In agony she falls one last time
She has no strength left to make that climb


Illusions

Fire burning dim in her eyes
As she sees through all of the lies
The reality becoming clear
As she tries to grasp what she holds dear
But all the illusions turn to smoke
And with each breath she begins to choke
Until she can breathe no more
And falls slowly to the floor


Taking Your Hand

I hate to let you see me weak
Those times that my world feels so bleak
When I fall to a place I hate to be
Lost in my mind as I fall to my knee
But this private hell grows smaller each day
When by my side you insist you will stay
And as I look up I see your hand
As it reaches out to help me stand


In The Rain

Rain drips down, cleansing the air
Moving slowly and with care
Falling softly upon their skin
Others head for shelter within
Yet there they stand, the only two
Each other’s eyes their only view
Lost in a moment, no notice of
The rain that’s falling so high above
The clouds subside and the sun shines down
And on her head glows a glistening crown
