I have travelled with this weight upon my shoulders

I’ve carried guilt much longer than anyone should ever


The balance has been tilted

The feelings have melted

Into a cohesive apparition

Sever the wilting artery

In a final act of desperation


This is not love

This is an abomination


A lonely hero

A jealous pariah


You can’t have one without the other


The looming silence cannot be ignored

The snakes are swarming through the cracks

And light is seeping through the door


Will you help me carry this burden

Through the rivers of hell?

I think I see the bottom


But it’s too dark to tell

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I've been commissioned by a band so I'll be putting a lot more songs up here.
