Follow the trail, down the rabbit hole,
Don’t you know. I am alive,
I’m just falling inwards.
Trying so hard just to be apart,
Losing heart, grip slips again.
Playing this game, another risky rhyme,
On the line. Follow the pen,
As it is lifted outwards.
What seems insane, born of the pain,
Let it rain, like a fresh start.
Frail nightingale, choked by a stone,
Muted tone. Left to her fate,
Another night spent alone.
Soared into the sky, wanting to die,
Flew to high, and then just gave in.
Eye’s shut tight, this is goodbye,
No one will cry. Witness all,
Say her reasons were unknown.
Spiraling down, crashed into the ground,
Not a sound, crushed from within.
Paralyzed Heart, afraid to feel,
So much unreal. Surrounded by lies,
With regret transforming.
Nothing you say, could change the way,
I feel today. Self loathing hate.
Musical Box, rewound to much,
Lost its touch. Grating the nerves,
The memories reforming.
Damaged by fate, always to late,
Suffocate, just fading away.
Black Butterflies, sing a quite song,
Mind feels wrong. Am I alive?
Pinned down by expectations.
What can be said? When the heart is dead,
Empty bleed. Wilted by time.
Set on display, so they can rule,
I’m the fool. Cracking my pride,
Numbing to all sensations.
Eyes seem alive, but this is a lie,
Shut up inside. Still they say she’s fine.
Glittering Crown, like a collar chokes,
All she wrote. Can they want more?
When it’s the source their hating.
Distract the mind, no secrets find,
Going blind. Just trying to breath.
Painful withdraw, a poisoned core,
Demands more. Shattering soul,
Madness takes form in writing.
Just make believe, that if she did leave,
Some would grieve. Always left behind.
