Darkest Night, Weakest MomentFragile as an egg shell
I am trod underfoot without thought
Today may not be the day I fell
But it is bound to happen sooner than not
I'm just so tired, weary, worn down
But no one seems to see me
My smile just an upside down frown
But no one will ever look close enough to see
My kindness I give freely, as much as I can
But all I get back are odd looks, or mistaken
How much can this one girl stand?
Today, my base was shaken...
I am trembling, my footholds swept away
I am spiraling down, down deeper than any pit
How long can I hold on? How long can I stay?
Until I fall and find it is below rock-bottom when I hit
The people I need, so many, I'm so selfish...
They have their own life, their own happiness to find
I try to down-play my weakness by being bold, being brazen, embellished
But in the end, I know I'll be left behind...
I'm a burden, a set-back, the past
I plow forward, feeling like Atlas walking through diamonds, sliced skin
Nothing I make is meant to be long-term,
DistanceSometimes a little space
Isn't just a waste
Solitude, just a taste
Has helped me in what I've faced
Sometimes a little calm
Is the perfect balm
To every indecision or qualm
Returning your world to your palm
But inside I am in turmoil, a mess
Why do I seem to find this world's every trial and test?
I'll never know, so I'll have to just guess
But dear god, all the stress...
I'll be snowy white before my peers
I have aged quite beyond my years
Having braved the teasing and sneers
Wishing one day my way will be clear
I hope one day my life will be easy, quiet
Show me the way, and I'll try it
Now I'm tired of rhyming, so I'll just do whatever
Whatever I want til I feel better...
PleadingI just want to leave
And never go back
The journey, the destination
None of it matters
As long as I never again
Have to stay in the place
In my mind, on this patch of dirt
Any place would be better than this
Row away over my sea of tears
Blood red ocean, pink frothy wake
I don’t want a solution, I want an end
Something SweetCome on now
No need to be shy
To be there is my solemn vow
Our limit goes beyond the sky
Holding your words close
Holding your heart sweet
Tingling from head to toes
Swept right off my feet
Thought I was empty
Now I’m full to the brim
Oh, sweetheart, how you tempt me
When I am usually proper and prim
Darlin’, I’ve got it bad for you
And I’m making sure you know it
You know I’m proud of being honest and true
Cause life’s a big ole’ party sometimes, and honey?
You’re a hit.
