When you want an explanation
Just look at my soulless eyes
For it tells so many reasons
That it taste bland even with a spice
For there's two in me
A beast who's roaring for freedom
And a dead angel which all can see
As craved in bones, the years of martyrdom
So why hang in the waning and coaxing reality
Which comes and goes with a frolic facade
Instead of the discreet reality
Where dreams flow in fluttery cascade.
Kill the pain
So many seasons changed
But the pain stays, scars never fade
That I almost forgot, theres no summer in my life
Only fall and winter, where all's dull and cold.
The tick tock of the clock
Beats with the ryhtmm of the broken heart
They've said that I have a matured
But they don't really know how i cry.
I can see through those fake smiles,
But just keep on pretending, hoping for another chance
And I rather take the pills and embrace it's side effects
Or a dozen bottle of wine to ease the pain for a day.

Too bad if you don't take any Alcoholic drink, it's even harder if you really don't want to leave but you also don't want to stay, figuring the emotion out is no joke and when someone ask what's wrong it's even harder cause hell I don't know what they are nor who.
Great poem! Very well played.
