my veins are suffocating just below my lizard skin
perhaps i’ll let them breathe for once and let the fresh air in
and feel my fading heart decide to let the reaper win
i can’t fight the feeling that resides so deep within
there’s nothing left to find this time so i’ll commit this sin
i’ll write the words that mean nothing to leave for next of kin
my fear is lost in hopelessness that i bleed through this pen
when all is gone i must recall i did the best i can
to leave this place to find the peace that never could have been
i bid farewell and make a space for new life to begin
