Forgive Me, My Past

Days grow long, blur together
While my breaths grow short
How much longer
How much time before
Redemption and loneliness
Takes me in its arms
Wraps me blindness
And swifts me away
To the land of perpetual darkness

How far will life push me
Push me before falling
Falling off the edge of insanity
The world breaths red
And I breathe black
How much longer
How much time
How long will it be
Till I'm alright?

Forgive me, my past
Sweet memories are
Too bitter—too heavy
To carry you any farther.
I must abandon you for sanity
Because no matter
How long—how much
I think of you… I'll think of how
You'll never change for me.
