On The Brink

Here’s one that i had lost its from back in 2008

I STAND ALONE ON THE BRINK IN THE DARK

A CLIFF TO MY LEFT A CLIFF TO MY RIGHT

DEEP DARK PITS BEHIND AND IN FRONT

I CANT CLIMB OUT THE ONLY WAY TO GO IS DOWN DOWN DOWN

BUT WHAT LIES IN WAIT DOWN IN THE PITS

DARKNESS DESPAIR OF THAT IVE HAD ENOUGH

AS IT IS I CAN BARELY SEE THE SUN

AND ONLY WHEN IT’S IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SKY

THE PIT IS THAT DEEP THE WALLS

THAT HIGH STRAIGHT UP THEY GO ROCKY AND JAGGED

DARING SOMEONE TO CLIMB THEM

BUT ONLY DEATH AWAITS FOR IN THESE WALLS

LIVE CREATURES THAT CAN KILL YOU SLOWLY

AND PAINFULY IT IS A LINGERING DEATH THAT GOES ON

FOR DAYS AND WEEKS SOMETIMES MONTHS

EVEN YEARS WHAT COULD POSSIBLY HELP ME

ESCAPE I DON’T KNOW I WISH I DID

I SEE THE SHADOWS OTHERS CAST FROM TIME TO TIME

AS THEY PASS BY SOME SAY HELLO OTHERS JUST LOOK ON IN DISDAIN AT TIMES I THINK I SEE OTHERS HERE IN THE PIT

BUT THEN THEY DISSAPEAR WERE THEY EVER REALLY THERE I ASK

I DON’T KNOW OTHER TIMES SOMEONE WILL CAST A ROPE DOWN

BUT IT NEVER REACHES DOWN FAR ENOUGH

HOW IS THAT GOING TO HELP I ASK BUT THEY NEVER HEAR ME

SOMETIMES I WONDER IF ITS ALL JUST A DREAM IS IT REAL

OR IS IT MAKE BELIEVE WILL I EVER KNOW THE TRUTH

IS THE TRUTH EVEN REAL OR IS IT A LIE

OH HOW I WISH IT WOULD RAIN MAYBE THEN I COULD SEE AGAIN

MAYBE I WOULD BE CLEANSED MAYBE THIS PIT WOULD BE MADE RIGHT

BUT I DOUBT IT BECAUSE LIFE NEVER GOES THE WAY IT SHOULD

LOVE IS GAINED LOVE IS LOST LOVE IS NEVER SEEN AGAIN

WHEN WILL IT END HOW WILL IT END

WILL THE PAIN GO ON FOREVER OR WHAT WILL HAPPEN INSTEAD THEY SAY LIFE GOES ON BUT REALLY THAT’S JUST A BUNCH OF SHIT

SURE MAYBE ONE DAY THINGS WILL CHANGE BUT YOULL NEVER FORGET THAT’S NOT THE WAY IT WORKS HOW I WISH IT WAS

FORGIVENESS IS THE EASY PART FORGETTING IS IMPOSSIBLE

CAN WE EVER FORGET WHAT WAS THE BEST TIMES OF OUR LIVES

MAYBE, MAYBE NOT I KNOW THIS DOESN’T MAKE MUCH SENSE

BUT THIS IS THE PIT THAT IM IN HOW DO YOU FORGET

WHAT WAS ONCE A HAPPY TIME

DO I WANT TO FORGET IT I SEE NOW WAY OUT

EXCEPT DOWN BUT THE WAY I NEED TO GO IS UP

WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE

I FEEL SO HELPLESS

LIKE IM ADRIFT ON A SEA AN EMPTY SEA AND

THERES NOTHING

I CAN DO

TO SAVE MYSELF
