No Longer

It's a follow up to At My Bitter Expense, when you realise that you shouldn't have to stand for bullying

Another complaint, another shot aimed at me

But ready to smile, because all of this will be over soon

I'm not ravaging my soul for your sense of humour

I'm not dragging myself to inevitable doom

 

Here we go, I'm imploding

Words made futile by experience

Manipulated into unending battles with body and heart

I'll either kill you or lay my demons to rest 

I'll finally let myself pass this test

 

I'm running away and for once I'm happy

My heart and soul deserve something better now

My life is turning away from darkness now

I'm wide awake and at peace

I'm wide awake and in relief

 

Another blood drop spilled and I ponder the cause

Another puppet to dance to the tune of war

Harass me or seduce me

I'm not living and dying for you

Assault me or condemn me

I'm not burning any bridges for you

 

I'm running away and for once I'm happy

My heart and soul deserve something better now

My life is turning away from darkness now

I'm wide awake and at peace

I'm wide awake and in relief

 

I'm wide awake

I'm wide awake 

I'm wide awake

And remembering what love felt like

 

The End
