Darkened Hearts

It's about how people can loathe you and dislike you for no logical reason, and how it leads to bullying and anger for the most fickle of reasons

Saddened by a lack of expectation

In many ways I made my own downfall

Inevitability put aside for a moment

I can't say it didn't even hurt at all

Lacking perception and lacking depth

Lacking the chance to catch my breath

 

Visions of space, dreams of grandeur 

The chances I won and lost with her

My fears realised and words designed to whip

The pain was sharper now that I've lost her

 

Simple tasks devolved to simple hearts

And I still don't have what's required to complete

Wasting no more time on trying to survive

No second glance as I run away from here

 

Bitter perspective with the wounds still raw and burning

The heart in pieces, but shreds still remain yearning

Old insults burn more intense and deeper than ever

It seems my courage has been lost forever

 

Simple tasks devolved to simple hearts

And I still don't have what's required to complete

Wasting no more time on trying to survive

No second glance as I run away from here

 

Black hearts, repeating questions, turning to interrogation

Humour finds it's way to darken my days

Black hearts, malevolent suggestion, deathly celebration

Humour finds the heart the tear me apart

The End
