“Where would you sleep when you fall away?”
These answers haunt me;
As I’ve seen you die today.
Awaken in total darkness;
Seeing the old eyes under the same lids.
It keeps beating my heart out, with blood falling away
I fear it before;
But the shadows still live in me.
The mirrors have turned red;
The bones are scattered on the floor, and I live to see it.
My mind is full of pain;
I edge the blade to slit me away.
Oh, the pain I’m in, is bare to believe in.
