My Agony

Give me a false sense of happiness
Breathe subtle hope into my delusions
Share me with some special vagueness
And remember that I have always died

This is my truth
This is my scar
A memory I’ve dreamed of
If only I could be someone else

Heal me with just a smile
An illusion of some other blessing
To hold me stagnant in eternity
And believe that I have always tried

This is my truth
This is my chasm
A cry I’ve prayed for
If only I could break myself

And hope
That I will fall
From my sorrow
From my depravity
For just a moment
To save me
From the agony
I cherish in me
