Only Retribution

I realize I can’t stay here,
I wish that I could disappear

I’ve tried to be less and less
In hopes of covering up the mess

Of what my life’s become,
All the things I could’ve done

And words I have never said
I used to wish that I were dead

These things are all in the past
Crazy how life goes so fast

I can’t do it on my own
I hate to face the world alone
Covering the pain with a smile so fake

Please don’t hurt me
I’m fragile,
I’ll break.
