    will this be the night
    will this be the time
    will I finally win?
    my thoughts finally mine?

    it could be the night
    it could go just right
    it all falls in place
    give into the fight

    just once for relief
    an unfiltered breath
    once more to breathe
    let go of myself

    all of this backwards
    effort for nothing
    wasted the bottle
    hopeing for something

    one time I thought
    that I saw a reason
    something for living
    the hope that I needed

    in the end its the same
    as everything else
    its always the same
    it all always fails

    its always the yearning
    that fills all your sails
    its all that you fight for
    hang by your nails

    then one day you turn
    only to see
    the one thing you wanted
    was never to be

    the one thing you hoped for
    the one thing you dreamed
    now you know pain
    what loneliness means.
