have you ever loved someone but knew they didn’t care,
have you ever said the words only to have them go nowhere,
lingering on your mind the painful sting,
shapless masses control your brain,
shadows casted on the wall,
dancing menicingly as you begin to fall,
smoke clears as the flames fill the room,
piercing screams fill your head,
withdrawn opinions insinuate anything untrue,
intensional contortions of understanding,
a level untouched instilling fear in the hearts of men,
a pen becomes mightier than the sword,
vicious tounges lashing out to make you bleed,
the loudest sound that you’ve ever heard are your own tears hitting the floor,
unruly justice for the insaine clown,
reality playing like a drawn out song,
shifting your weight from one side to another,
wails of delight are misinterpreted as crys of defeat,
a snicker at the cost of someone else,
judgement placed on those that can’t,
praise placed on those that can,
wishes on the stars covered with polluted haze,
numbing cold,
baked heat,
salt on your lips from tears of the past,
smiles to act a front,
everlasting shades of doubt,
play games on a sould thats broken apart,
somewhere the silver lining,
but too blind to see,
the only searching to be done is to find the real me,
i don’t need you anymore,
wasted time,
wasted love,
how many instances i have thought i’d won,
only to wind up where i’d begun,
bitter kisses and crawling skin,
crush it out like the smoldering cigarette,
exhale inspiration,
smoke spiraling from my mind,
as i think about you one last time,
say goodbye to a friend long gone,
someone that had already left when we were young,
no more tears from my bloodshot eyes,
no more nightmares,
no more strings,
go on without me,
i choose to stay right here,
safe from you and what you are,
untouchable to your firey hate,
your anger and torment can be yours alone,
cause here in my heart i am finally home….
