Can’t seem to find the answer
I search so deeply for
Peace is a hard fought dream
A recurring circle I am running in

These struggles tear me from within
Baring pieces of me I want to hide from
Yet you see me
Right through the pain
The level of shame
Staining my reflection
I look upon

Wish I could use your senses
To taste this skin I am
Forced to be within
Maybe then I would see the light
At the end of this tunnel
I am so buried in

Oh how I wish this wasn’t
So complicated, so tainted
From those before you
Who’s carelessness
Left the damage I am with
The only thing I can offer

Pieces of the puzzle
With no direction, no matching pieces
A kaleidoscope of emotion
Constantly washing through me
It’s not easy
Holding it all together for you

I dig under all of these cracks
You so clearly see
The thought of being broken
Devastates the strongest parts of me

Want to be so shiny
Such a perfect form of what you need
Can’t seem to manage that easily
As the bitter taste
Flows above what I need

Keeping me face down
Buried beneath this mountain
I can’t seem to ever climb
