Here Lies Sorrow
Author: Shira


Every song I hear is about you and I
i turn off the radio, love is a lie

A state of mind we need to give up
Agony, pain, heartache in a cup

Here lies misery, here lies your dreams
Here is agony, up to her old sceams

Here are your thoughts, so dark and vile
Here is a lie to hang for awhile

Here is trust, broken like glass
There goes the truth running so fast

Where is happiness when you need it so
i guess it left, give pain a go

There is frustration to go with it all
The world kicks you down, even after you fall

Who's there to help you up like they said they would?
Sorry but that's pride there just like it should.

Sorrow is the word they should carve on your stone
You die lonely, unhappy, untrustful and alone.

Got my words together xD...By every single word, the meaning is strongly felt. I can relate to this piece and the feelings which are felt, perfectly. I have read this several times. And yet every time, the feelings are much more deeper...stronger. I do wish you feel better very soon, as this pain and torture won't do you any good. Thank you for sharing this. So passionate! Wish you to get this all past you

Thnk you

Thank you both for your comments. Don't worry about me. I figured out a long time ago that pain doesn't help. I write it down, what i'm feeling. it makes me feel better about myself when i get it down. thank you again for your concern and your wonderful comments.
