alone with so much around
so much chaos without a sound

my heart unable to speak
the words you continue to seek

you cannot reach me to help me down
my toes will never touch the ground

our worlds are different now
you may never be able to see how

i am broken, you see
there is nothing that can fix me

the darkness comes and goes
but it’s the only comfort that I know

my drug of choice
that has no voice

it swallows me whole
and empties my soul

i try to escape the pain
but it will always find me again

so i apologize and thank you
in the same breath, it’s true

for your love for me sees me through
to another day to start anew
