Exhaustion takes over my body

My headaches from little sleep

I push my body knowing with closed eyes

You draw closer

I watched the shadows dance

In the day

I let them creep closer in the night

Holding me close

Holding me tight

My sanity is slipping from me

My voice of reason is crying

My body moves to slow

I can't eat

It hurts my body

Can't read

It hurts my mind

I can't leave

I can't live

Slowly losing all concussion thoughts

I slip away from this world

I'm tired of living this life

Of living this lie

Of cutting to feel alive

And dying on the inside


My personal hell grows

But this is your paradise
