Failure

Failure

A Poem by Lady Celery
"

I wrote this song because I felt like I had ruined my life and was completely insufficient at everything.

"
I never meant to turn these giants into statues made of stone.
I never dreamed that I would wake up one day and feel so all alone.
I'm in the dark waiting for you,
'Cause I missed the mark, i'm disappointing. 

I wish that I could take it all back but it's far too late and I've fallen from grace.
If I could I would rip my head off so I could save everyone from another dull blade.
I don't want to fall away, but I would do it all to save you.

Please excuse me for giving you poison 'stead of roses and acclaim.
I accidentally took your shadows and I burned them in the flames.
You're in my mind, I'm so damn sorry.
You say it's fine, I know you're lying.

I wish that I could take it all back but it's far too late and I've fallen from grace.
If I could I would rip my head off so I could save everyone from another dull blade.
I don't want to fall away, but I would do it all to save you.

I'd do it all for you.

Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it :)
It was really beautiful! "'Cause I missed the mark, i'm disappointing." couldn't have written the definition of failure any better. Well written, I loved it!

Thank you so much!
I like the poem and I could feel the song.

The poem is very good. It is real life and honest ending. We will know a lot of regret in a lifetime of living. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

Very beautiful. I can really relate because many times I will feel like a failure also. You captured the feelings of never ending failure to a t.
