Surviving you, too

Surviving you, too

7-28-19

My mind is my crime as I walk the razor line

Alone, and cold, more than you could know

I hide in plain sight, as I prepare for the fight

The lights are low, and I want to explode

I stay quiet in the dark, as I wait for dawn to come

The respite is a lie, and I’d love to know why

Normalcy is a farce, it’s someone else’s dream

I’m frayed, and betrayed, torn apart at the seams

How long can I go on, my grip is not that strong

Alone in my head, all that’s dying is dead

I’m surviving you, too

All in spite of you

I’m stronger than you think

Here on the brink

I’m surviving alone

In a bed of stone

You won’t take me down

I refuse to bow

The clock tick-ticks, every minute it clicks

Letting me know time never will slow

Every plan I ever had, is making me mad

Every dream I dared to dream, is making me scream

Parents, loved ones, and friends, don’t understand

I’m not wired like you, but I am not a fool

I can’t explain what I do, can’t explain how I feel

It’s like I’m locked in a cage, I’m stuck in a haze

How long will I wander, before I am found?

How long can I swim here before I will drown?

I’m surviving you, too

All in spite of you

I’m stronger than you think

Here on the brink

I’m surviving alone

In a bed of stone

You won’t take me down

I refuse to bow
