Like a water droplet life's hanging in me
Shake me a little so I can rest in peace
Desire to live and ability to dream
Take it away, like you took everything

Dried veins, face grown in texture pale
Perplexed my coffin’s waiting for its last nail
Cut the rope now I’m tired of hanging
Take my life, like you took everything

I’ve fought with the Gods and the demons
I can’t fight with you I think I’m done
Broken bones and half burned wings
Burn me down, like you did everything

Staring in mirrors avoiding loneliness
I’ve started believing my life is just a mess
Break it down I’m tired of this routine
Take my life, like you took everything.

    Your words are both beuatiful and painful, I feel as tho I should feel bad for thinking how smoothly this rolls of the tongue and how rhytmical it is.

      Sometimes I think pain flows in smoother rhythm than any other emotion. Maybe I’m wrong. Thank you anyways.
