    The night is closing in
    it's getting darker every minute
    try to wrap my sweater closer
    but the coldness is definite

    Comfort in cigarette smoke
    and I inhale its safety glow
    they should have warned me
    before this pain started to grow

    If I burn all my journals
    will the memories go away
    so I won't have to relive them
    every fucking day?

    My emotions took over
    but was it survival or defeat
    when I forgot how to love
    cause it would kill me in a heartbeat

    A sudden thought might slip
    my mind unprepared
    I lost trace of my tracks behind
    and ended up really scared

    None of my thoughts makes sense
    just wish that they would
    but I'm too inadequate to tell
    even if they could

    (A little poem I wrote tonight. It pretty much sums up what I've been feeling today, and for years for that matter...)

    Sweet sugar water fills my mouth
    it's raining without water outside
    I cannot understand, how can it
    be drowning me on the inside

    As vivid as little snowflakes
    caressing my trembling hands
    reminding me of what I lost
    that no one truly understands

    I've lived for far too long
    dozens of life's before this of endless pain
    and the wind embraces me gently
    and takes my memories away again

    I lost too many battles
    that left these scars on my arm
    And forever lost in an a war of mind
    I tried to heal but only did harm

    I'm so tired of fighting
    begging you to kill me
    I know it's the only way
    to finally set me free
