Treasure Island

Irreplaceable Agony


A heart full of grief
A daily dose of agony,
That terrorizes me
And tears that fall slowly.

A longing to be happy,
However... so far trapped,
In a heartache
That is always recapped.

A constant reminder
Of the destroyed pieces,
That everyday fall to the floor
Untouched or relieved.

A constant reminder of the pain,
Is just one more thing of suffrage
That will never be vanquished
Or relieved to save or salvaged.

The burden is too hard to bare
And is no longer able to be saved
Along with the life
Of mine who is now repaid.

My heart is no longer my own,
But belongs to the pain I hold
Inside,
And the tears that I unfold.

They haunt me day and night
To see just how far
They can drag me by the chest
And pull me across the floor.

I scream to break free,
But nobody hears me.
Nobody cares how I feel,
Or who I want to be.

My heartache has overcome
Me by my mistakes and lies
That I have told
Just to hide all my broken ties.

I now live in the dark
Where this life of mine,
Will soon fade away in the darkness,
Where of me, no one will find.

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
