I’m pushed to my limits
I can’t believe you would do this
Where has your sanity gone?
Set up simply to fall
Were there any roots from the beginning?
You set the stage, donned your mask
And played the part oh so perfectly
Was there any shred of certainty in you?
Or were you consumed by your own doubt?
I thought we could make this happen.
I thought we were built to last.
Call me a fool, but I was in.
At least I gave it my all.
Trying to make sense of this catastrophe
Is like trying to believe you were never real.
You had me convinced.
Is laughter supposed to be the sunshine
For the man now shivering in freezing wind?
Was this a test
To establish my manhood?
Boxed in, I have nowhere left to go.
It’s not that I wanted to run,
But I can’t use these legs that feel like arms.
I can’t seem to see
How you’re content with this place
A room with no windows,
A body without a face.
The only hope I hold for you
Is that you’ll find your way out one day.
This can’t play out well
If you’re always trying to stay safe.
