Have I spent all these years
Waiting for someone
Whose heart has hardened against me
Turned into a stone
That even the suffering of my soul cannot ever hope to heal
And now I am left with
The shell of my life
Bloodless and bled of every drop of humanity
I still have to understand
How can someone turn against another
To have them sacrifice everything they have
With no recompense
And what remains?
Something that dares to call itself still human
Something that braves the light and fights to shun the dark
Something that will not embrace the easy way
To lie, to fall to the side, to escape it all…

I think there’s been a misunderstanding
I think that you believe I will bow to you
I’d rather die than face that day
I’d rather die than choose that way

So what if hearts are crushed as glass
So what if I am caught and pulled apart
Something will still remain
So what if compassion is a dead emotion
So what if the hourglass bleeds
So what if I can’t remember where I’m from
Or coming to
I’m breaking through

Chill breaking brittle bones
I huddle to myself in the darkness before dawn
With the truth that there is nothing before us
And the only way I can return is to have you
Reach out to me
But would I want to be helped to a place
Which only welcomes those with empty faces
To be truly free is to find oneself
And to find oneself is to walk alone
I can find no warmth in these burning embers
And now I see the fires in your eyes
Burn cold

Because I’ve changed so much to please you
Because I’ve changed so much only to hurt myself
Because now I don’t know where I’m from or going


Confusion tears me
I don’t know who to run to anymore
I’m too old to have a mother
And yet too young to know my destiny
You betrayed me
