There is a darkness inside of me

It snuffs out what dares shine

By way of a sharp and deliberate heel 

I smile because I don’t know what else to do

I look into your eyes

Knife to my throat 

Not wanting to drag you into Hell with me

But I can only smile for so long

So when I say I must leave, let me go

My body is a pain machine

My mind is broken

Much more so, my heart

Piece by piece, I am being dismantled


Reduced to the dust from whence I came

And not a moment too soon
