Father, do you hear me?
Mother, could you hold me?
Give direction to my prayers
I pray thee…
Cast me not away. I plead
Not today you said…
Draw me back. Into the side of the living for I am dead on the inside.
Since my innocence was taken, I’ve been nothing but a facade
I eat and breathe, yet all I do is exist
I’m losing my voice calling on you.
He took me
He broke me
He said not to speak about
Not to think about
Still; I feel it
Coursing through my veins like poison ivy
What did you do to me?
The love you offered was as cold as death
I’ve lived a thousand times in your endless lies
Still, I die the same everytime.
But never in your arms
Such a tragic demise.
The ice box you call a heart causes me to shiver 🥶
Still you say, Don’t let this fire burn out yet
You needed my warmth till you put out the flames 🔥
The memory of you causes me to shudder
This is how I know I’m alive. Mostly.
But you, dear Lover is like no other.
Convinced we we’re broken inside
So I beg, lady death embrace me and my lover for we are no longer cold to your touch.
Take us at night when it’s coldest
That’s usually when I feel loneliest.
Fanning my white flag 🏳
