Meaningless Lies
Meaningless lies fill the air,
with every breath I take
my life is dwindling away.
No escape, caught between
places, one living the other
spiritual. Trying to find
the reason for being,
a reason to answer all my
questions. Hide behind walls
that aren't there, fight wars
that can not be won, and
for what? So that I may
die pretending like I lived,
die being someone or
something that I can't be. Tears
are becoming blood, and as
I cry more my wounds grow deeper.
My pain is increasing, and
the tears won't stop. I'm crying
myself to sleep, to an eternal,
where I will finally find peace.
