Witness My Collapse

Take a look.

As the light floods,

Bringing clarity.

I strive forward,

To gain what was stolen.

My reasoning,

My understanding,

Has fallen away.

Taken by the shadows.

 

Raise the torch,

Illuminate the way.

Something blocks me,

Holding me back.

Tragedy has struck,

So many times.

Now I feel like

It’s finally taken its toll…

 

Anger

Takes control of my life.

Happiness

An emotion long, far gone.

Where will I go?

Now that the path’s distorted.

I am lost, confused,

A child in wanting.

 

In my mind,

In my heart,

I know there’s a hole.

What in the world

Will make this pain stop?

 

Give me my mind,

Give me back my heart.

Without it I am starving

For a reason to remain.

Give me my love,

Give me back my strength.

At my core I am without

A reason to remain.

 

Witches come,

Looking for blood.

Sharks swarming,

Searching for the prey.

I escape,

For I am on a quest.

On the road

To find what was stolen.

 

Watch me,

Care for my youth.

In my age,

I will end up hurting myself.

I call out

Someone save me now.

But no one listens

To the stand-out man.

 

Joy,

The emotion I miss.

Hate,

Fills the void within.

How can I go on?

Moving on is so hard.

Pile tension

On top of this child.

 

Deep inside.

There is trouble brewing.

In my thoughts,

I know I can’t stop it.

I am powerless,

And reality crashes down around my feet.

 

Give me my mind,

Give me back my heart.

Without it I am starving

For a reason to remain.

Give me my love,

Give me back my strength.

At my core I am without

A reason to remain.

 

Stand back,

Stay far away.

In time I shall implode,

Witness my collapse.

Walk away,

Ignore me,

But keep an eye open,

To witness my collapse.

 

Destroy a simple man,

Of a simple life,

By simple words,

And simple actions.

He seems so happy.

But inside he’s melting down.

Maybe it’s all an act,

And nobody’s noticed yet.

The simple man

Wishes to have a simple fate.

 

Carry me away!

I regret everything I’ve done.

I regret what I’ve said.

I regret passing my chances.

And I regret living this way.

 

Send my apologies

To those that deserve them.

I need to take the road alone.

 

If I come back I shall win.

Shall I not, I shall fail.

But this is one adventure I feel

I must take on my own.

Recover what is lost,

What has been stolen.

 

Rage,

As I storm away.

Ignorance,

I close my eyes to avoid the woes.

What can I do?

Trapped inside myself.

Demons are closing in,

Waiting for the end.

 

A bitter ending

To a bitter life.

Maybe it won’t come,

And I can prevail.

But in this present time,

I am a failure.

 

Give me my mind,

Give me back my heart.

Without it I am starving

For a reason to remain.

Give me my love,

Give me back my strength.

At my core I am without

A reason to remain.

 

Stand back,

Stay far away.

In time I shall implode,

Witness my collapse.

Walk away,

Ignore me,

But keep an eye open,

To witness my collapse.

 

It’ll be a wonderful show.

Someone will feel pain

When I turn on them.

But in the end all will laugh.

Finally I shall admit

I am the fool.

 

But I will try as hard as I can

To get out of the frying pan,

And escape the fire.

The least I can do now

Is walk on,

And on,

And far away down this road.

 

Follow me,

And you may be able to see

To witness my collapse.

Should my adventure fail,

Look my way,

Witness my collapse.

The End
