Destroying The Illusion - Poem by Ace Of Black Hearts

Destroying the pain inside.
How many lies do you hide behind.
How thick is that wall.
Will it crumble,
will you stumble.
Can you walk over hot coals in bare feet?
Can you overcome that which was you thought was suppose to be?
Is it an unwritten destiny?
Know your enemies.
Your friends arn't always the ones standing next to you.
Do you know the truth?
Do you think your a super sleuth?
Guessing at the infinite possibilities.
it is or it isn't. No in between.
All the way.
Come on make my day. I will not partake in the games you play.
I got what i want now i shall leave the floor.
Its getting cold, please close the door.
Not letting anyone in
not no more.
All options have been fully explored.
Every one has a number like a statistic.
I must be realistic.
No more bullsh*t,
no more being optimistic.
Theirs only so much trust that can be spread around.
My ears hurt from all the sounds.
Whispers of suggestions of every direction.
I must take cover for my own protection.
I cant believe what my eyes see.
Another projection.
Foretelling what could be, is no longer enough for me.
I need absolute certainty. I need fully understanding.
Sorry if i seem demanding.
But I've been planning.
And it doesn't include you.
You got to do what you got to do.
Or you'll get used.
Suffocating, is you face turning blue?
Sorry i still cant help you.
Stay away, i pray for the best.
But can't get involved in your mess.
God bless.
That's all i have left.
hope that i enough,
For my hearts at rest.
