depression · Life · love



Confrontation never easy for me

Always so scared

To vent my wishes

To be heard

Falling on deaf ears

I scream to be heard

Those words cutting

Tearing through you

A thousand knives flicking flesh

Passing through aimlessly

But damage persists

Blood spewing from the violence

Of my words

Blindfold on

I wish not to see

Fallout from my radiation

As I scream aloud again

Remaining skin no more

I have spoken

I told you I don’t like confrontation

Life · love

The argument


It’s brewing

Feel it surround

Enveloping two

Go to town

Get it out

In the air

Scream out loud

Lay it bare

Love, hate

Rage with might

Piercing words

Fateful fright

Throw everything

Across the room

Self implode

Hearts go boom

family · Life · love

Suicidal rage

Pathetic excuse for a father

Pathetic excuse for a lover

Temper frayed from sleepless nights

Rage envelops with a fright

Snaps in a moment, fist through the door

Argument ensues, emotion so raw

Go on hit me, I deserve it, sorry excuse

Losing it like that, what a recluse

My boy there innocent, said nothing wrong

Aggressive dad, what are you doing, it’s wrong

Take him back to his mums, he falls asleep

I am so sorry, so pathetic, I start to weep

A six year’s olds comments, cuts like a knife

It’s shocking how they look at life

I drive off to work, one thing on my mind

End it, now, escape from this bind

Crash the car, crash it good

Wreck myself break it, if only I could

Selfish of me, to walk out on my family

My kids, my girlfriend what life to be

In the biggest mess I ever could be

I’m certainly the lowest ever I’ve been

Christmas makes you feel really down

Certainly this evening I did nothing but frown

I’ve calmed down now from a suicidal rage

All this because of a depressed snap rampage
