Is This the Life You Promised Me

  • 15 Jan 2015

How can you say that I don't love you any more
When you are the one who's been stabbing me repeatedly
Punching a hole through the painting of us I made
Pouring gasoline all around the house
While up the stairs I laid

Why did you have to take the life of the one
Who've saved me so many times 
From your ways so vile and cruel?
Why do you take pleasure in seeing my clothes 
Stained with my blood and tears?

Does it really bring you so much happiness
To see me hurt and broken for all these years?
Despair after despair and distress endlessly
Scraping my neck and arms with the same knife mercilessly
Laughing as I scream...

Is this the life you promised me?
It is my wish that one day I get the courage to leave...
