Life Is A Slow Death (God Please Help Me)

I can't take it,

I'm only asking,

Please Lord help me,

I'm tired of relapsing,

Over and over,

My veins are collapsing,

I know you hear me,

I'm sorry for babbling,

I don't understand,

Cushions and pillows adorning the bed 

we chose for this life together 

A shared bathroom that won't be shared anymore 

Two shelves, one mostly empty 

A walk in wardrobe, filled once with fabric that clothed us

Only now it is bare with...

Chapter 19: The Death of The Rebel Kid

entry picture

The clocks have hit midnight for me 
I finally reached my end
I have nothing left to live for 
I am closer to the edge of the cliff 
And there is no rope to hold on to.

Time has run out from this soul 
I've given up on living 
But I think I was already gone.

Caught between the ups and downs 
All my faith is fading away 
Broken and alone 
The loneliness comforts my pain.

Drifting away t...
