What do you tell, someone who cannot listen?

What do you tell, someone who cannot listen?

A Poem by JustALotusFlower

What makes me cringe, is the pain that I feel.

So many twists, turns, I've lost control of the wheel.

I cannot face myself, knowing I've done it once more.

I locked my heart, but she broke through the door.

I stopped what I thought, was a damaging upcoming.

I committed to her, but what I was becoming.

Took over my mind, and corrupted my brain.

I tried to fight it, but she won all the same.

How do I say the words, she doesn't want to hear?

I couldn't bring it to myself, for her to shed a tear.

I fucked up again, and I knew it would happen.

Who am I now? To make a happy ending?

I don't deserve what she gives me. I wasted it all.

And I don't want her to see it, when I start to fall.

I thought I was okay. I thought we'd be alright.

Then she came back, and I lost the fight.

It's eating away at my mind, I cannot give in.

But how do I tell her...If I don't want her to listen?

Darkness envolopes us all. Its the certain part of us that we cannot control. the poetic side of me is dark. you have yet to be consumed by the insanity of life, which consumed me once before. tak.. more..
