We're All Mad HereAm I mad?
Or is this the new type of normal?
Everywhere I look I see people with problems:
Depression, Bipolar, Borderline, Anxiety...
Is there a person left who isn't mental?
Or is this what the world is now?
Has the whole world gone psychotic?
I see my friends and they all have problems.
They're all just like me:
Broken, tarnished, hurting, wanting life to be different...
Is there anyone who doesn't wish things could change?
Is anyone truly happy with their life?
Is there anyone who wouldn't trade their lot in a heartbeat?
Is there anyone who's still whole inside?
Or has the world succumbed to darkness?
We're all mad here.
A Broken SoulA Broken Soul
One more broken soul
Laying shattered on the floor
Inside cut by cruel words.
Outside cut by the sweet blade.
A dream of a save world
In which can save me.
Reality hits me now and then
Because you can’t.
You would have to search
For every piece of my broken soul.
I can’t make you do that
All those shards could cut you
But we can’t both bleed.
What shall I do?
Wait until you can save me?
Save me and my soul?
I had that I can only deny this love to you
Because this love destroyed me
You broke me, you are the only one who can fix me.
HeartbrokenThe tears well up,
They start to cry,
The strength inside you,
Has become a lie.
Fulfilled with pain,
For this loss,
It has no gain.
Limb by limb,
Bloody tears drown you,
You struggle to swim.
Try and try to win it back,
But fail and fail again,
The stabbing in your heart,
Is spreading to your brain.
The blood flowing rivers,
Bursting all their sides,
The heart pumping fast,
Vessels bursting in your eyes.
The anger and depression,
The confusion and mistrust,
Build up lethally inside you,
Like a virused skin of puss.
The heartache ever lasting,
Your stomach knots and twists,
The only way to escape this heartache,
Is a pair of bloody wrists.
What Else Is There To Say?What would you say
If I told you "I love you"?
As the words dangle around
And dance between us
I am looking at you
Noticing your eyes gazing at me
All I want, is to know what's going on
In that mind of yours
I'm tired of being alone
Aren't you too?
This world we live in, is falling apart
And I just want to be with you
When it crumbles
I see you reading this
What's the wait
An answer is all I desire
It's all I have ever wanted
This is all an "if"
How would I even gain the strength
To converse with someone like you
I don't want to be lonesome
But the iron maiden of cowardliness could be my demise
Close in on this soul and pierce it with guilt and regret
It's a double edged sword
To say I love you
Conquering the demons holding me back from showing you my adoration
Then watch as judgement day arrives from your mouth
I wonder if I could ever say these three simple words to your face
