K - Poem by John Keenan


You're all i want, and all i need,
you're everything i saw in me,
But that doesn't mean much to you now,
does it? i want us to be, what we used to be,
before you ripped my soul from me.

I lie awake at night, thinking of the times we shared,
how much i love you, and how much i cared.
All the bad things i did, and never thought,
of how you felt, or what would happen? i got caught.

My heart races, and eyes red, you tell me you wish i was dead.
I know everything was my fault, and it goes off inside me.
Killing me, i know deep inside i cant live without you.
So i try to make things work, and fail.

And now i see, those beautiful blue eyes, stained
in the blood of our memories. I say im sorry,
how much i love you, tell you it will never happen again.
Well i was right, but i never got another chance.

So i try to live my life, and normal as i can.
try to suck it up, and 'Be a Man.'
But it's hard to live your life,
without the one thing you used to live for.

A year went past, and i miss you
more and more each day,
It's not in my hands anymore,
so ill sit down and pray
for an answer to come to me.

Now i have hope, for i have found out,
that i can't live my life without,
so i push this blade inside of me,
and wait for truth to set me free.
