Sleeping Suicide


Everyone has heard the lies

You left me here to eat myself alive

Guided by voices, I now push myself along

Someday I'll awake where I belong

Just another day I'll have to let go

A solitary banishment, eating at my soul

I search and approach in this desperate need

I emerge reborn in the land I must feed

Often I wonder if the mirror is still lying

Fighting my own world, powerlessly crying

Are we even alive in this world of disgrace?

Are my words of regret still written on my face?

I like the last part. And I realized I like the word Banishment. It's a beautiful word - ignoring the meaning behind it. Just say it out loud.
