All That I Should Be

Intoxicated with broken dreams
Of what I know I should be,
But disappointment and mistakes
Are all people make of me.
Chained inside this masquerade,
Self inflictions on my skin,
Defective attempts to please the rest
Decorate my porcelian.
Feeble, but greatest efforts in vain,
My will to try has faded
Come so far, with so little to show
And the road has left me jaded.
Allured by my false impression,
Shocked by what's not shown,
Guilty to being oblivious
To what you wish you'd known.
Suppressed by childhood fears,
Forget this lonely soul.
The fate of this unworthy girl
Is out of my control.
I'm sorry you witnessed my weakness
My mistakes are what make me,
Undying failure is all that is left
And futile dreams of what I should be.

Broken Angel

She tries to fly but it’s impossible,
Shadows control her puppet strings,
Broken promises, burdened with lies
Weigh down her blackened wings.
Familiar figures pale time away,
Left broken, marooned in despair,
Breathing in each curse and lie
Intoxicated with purest air.
Serene is the world standing still,
Witnessing and accepting each pain.
The wind has ceased to blow away
Shadows that taunt her over again.
She’s searching for a recognized face
They come and go as they please,
Reaching their hand just out of touch
Smirking and retracting as a tease.
Crystal formations tarnish her face
No longer confined in her heart
Needing help to find the strength
That’s long been torn apart.
Pretentious words or relative comfort
Don’t suppress her inevitable end,
Coincidentally salvation is lost
As she ceases to lie and pretend.
Lost and found within her own head
She’ll predict the end all alone,
But each word and thought constrict her
And her wings can’t take her home.

The Truth Is...

I’m broken but i can’t be fixed
And i refuse to let you try
You’ll only sew up hopeless dreams
With threads from every lie.
I’m shattered but you cannot see
And I’m sorry to say its true
I have to find the strength myself
There’s nothing you can do.
I’m tired but i raise a smile
To keep you from despair
From ever knowing my inner depths
And flinching at what’s really there.
I’m hurting but no one can tell
You only take the time to see
You take the time to find the wall
But not break it and find me.
I’m crying but my tears are dry
Empty, hollow and alone
I know that I must help myself
But I cant make it on my own.
I’m falling but I’m on the edge,
Concreted in this place
Bound with tears from lonely eyes
That scar this shadowed face.
And I’m sorry but what should I do
When I look in the mirror each day,
And staring back confirms the truth,
It’s MY fault I’m this way.

i think my fav line is:

"I’m broken but i can’t be fixed
And i refuse to let you try
You’ll only sew up hopeless dreams
With threads from every lie"

it fit together really well.
