lyrics by: Trevor Cartwright
Written on Jun 05, 2013

Here I lye in misery
Begging for this pain to leave me
And it never changes. Nothing ever changes.
Every day feels longer than the last.
Broken memories tangle and collapse

Have you ever felt lost inside?
Falling to pieces, tearing at the seems.
Broken dreams and desperate screams
Hide behind the smile, the plastic smile

This hellish nightmare is my own disdain
I'm the only one who is to blame
And it never changes. Nothing ever changes.
I'm the one who bears the lock and key
I'm the one who can set me free

Sometimes we are captor and captive
Jailer and Inmate
Master and slave
The choice for  freedom is within arm's reach
Because those who find are those who seek.

Aiysha Homer commented:
I realised all my poems for years have been depressing. I started to doubt I could do a happy poem so I have started trying. I never quite like them as much tho. it doesn't seem my style haha I can put more feeling into a sad poem it seems to flow easier!
