Play The Game

A Poem by Sherratt133

Song Wrote on January 21st 2010


Open my mind just to have it closed again,
Heat my cold heart just for it to freeze again,
It grips me tight and it slowly pulls me in,
I run so far, but its there within my head.


I run, I try to hide,

Cannot take it in my stride,

And I weep as it creeps in,

Let the games begin.


The higher you climb, The further you fall.

The further you run, The louder I call.

My brother, My mentor, His essence dies.

Cause this is the way the wind blows.

Stitch up the wounds, Just for them to bleed again,
With blood on my hands, I slowly rub it in,
I step up, But I'm knocked down again,
A young man broken, I keep it all within.


With my nightmares that I ride,

No peace is left inside,

And I gag as I breathe it in,

And it saunters in.


The longer you walk, The more you'll crawl,
The harder you push, The harder I pull,
My dreams, My shelter, This shelter crumbles,
No longer will I be pushed about.


Gain sanity, Just to lose my mind again,
Get a grip, Just to slip again,
Anger takes control, I turn against my kin,
The dice has been rolled, This game I shall not win.


With all the times I have tried,

Dreams faded and died,

I'm drifting away,

Slowly Decay.


The longer I wait, Slower the clock falls,
My hands are useless as being your tools,
My body, My Temple, My god disappears,
Cause this is the hand I was dealt.

"Anger takes control, I turn against my kin," - is it suppose to be 'kind', not kin? Sorry, just had to pick on something... Because the rest is flawless.
