As the night slowly draws
From shade to absolute darkness
My enemies come forth
N' gnaws me mercilessly
My tears serve not
As they usually do
But to brighten manifold
The burning pain within
I fantasize my victory
Every minute every day
From the dreaded enemies
Yet I fail, I fail, I fail
Tonight the pain
Just weighs me down
I might overcome
Or simply be drowned
Till sleep comes to my rescue
I have but one way to survive;
Hug my enemies till I die
That's how all these days went by;
I embrace tight
Every day, every night
My loneliness...

Its quite strange the way it is...
Tears well up
When I want them least
Smiles I have to weave
When i want them to leave .
Yet i feel proud
Of my innocent nerves
For not popping off
Even when their wreck is known;
For not pushing me down
The somber valley of insanity.
I want to forgive
I want to hold close
But i want to give happiness most of all.
Embracing when I fail at it
I must set free;
Free to go and conquer
All it wants and deserves;
Except me.
