New Women’s Chiffon Tops. They’re just so chiffon-y.

Rise Again

Shattered in my reflection
Just like that it’s over
Everything I knew and loved is gone
Faded into the chaos of my mind
Once was clear now is cloudy
Little pieces of my sanity flutter way
Too small to put back together

I’m left in the darkness of my mind
Wondering where it all went wrong
Discovering my darker self
Finding the answers in the ashes
Picking at old infections long festered

How is it that I missed out?
Never got what I was owed?
You think I’ve crashed and burned
But the fallen will rise again…

Dripping is the blood from my torn flesh
So easy to deal with, pain of the mortal kind
Reality rejected, my mind is dark and warped
The universe crammed into such a small place hurts
My mind is shattered, torn to shreds
To retarded to stitch back up again.

I’m screaming in the dark for something to return to normal
Knowing normal will never again be
Staring at the twisted reflections in the mirror
Wondering what the world sees in these eyes
Discovering truths that have been conveniently forgotten
Tearing away the wrongs of my soul to find the right

How is it that I missed out?
Never got what I was owed?
You think I’ve crashed and burned
But the fallen will rise again…

Things in my head are starting to fall into place
The last puzzle pieces showing themselves
The light has awakened
And the fallen will rise again…
