Walking Hand In Hand To A New Found Land - Poem by Chris Mena

Days slowly creep away
Without your saving grace I decay
I fade into dark
My life has been shattered, so has my heart

With these wounds on my skin
I can do nothing but give in
One word will hear you say
Maybe one time, some day

You will never see this mask retracted
I can't let my guard slip so contrasted
Leave me in this place
A feeling I am so used to staring face to face

Your saving grace is all I need
But it seems like you don't want to be
The person I started to care for
So I'll give in once more

To the dark that surrounds my soul
Leave this world behind, nothing but tears will I console
The fear of death has no bearing on my thoughts
It's something I'm used to thinking alot

Spread my mind
Finally see what kind
Of thing led me to this mess
I'll just lay awake forever, i'd die for you, I must confess

Empty Promises and shattered doubt
You took a piece of me that day I let you out
Now I will just stare out the window
Till the day god lets me go

Goodbye my friend
There is nothing left but the end
I have suffered defeat
But The grim reaper I will meet

At the end of the tunnel I see
There was only ever me
So once more I let the blood stain my skin
I give up, you win

Let this pain come back
No time to relax
I won't say a word
I'll just lie awake forever here, this isn't absurd

It's just like any other story
Why don't you just let me be me
Last breath escapes
To you I pray, don't contemplate

Life is so short for those who suffer
So tonight I'll end that pain, and confer
With the devil, as he takes my hand
And shows me to a new home, a new land...
