Why won’t you let me survive
Why won’t you let me breathe,
I try to inhale, exhale,
But you just won’t let me leave

Why won’t you give me some calm,
Just a little silence, peace?
Have I done you any harm?
Why won’t you give me reprieve?

Let me lay down, quiet, deep,
Let me wither, let me fade,
Bury me, please forget me,
Plant a tombstone in the shade

My head doesn’t work anymore,
Every limb shudders, I ache
My chest hurts and I don’t know
Just how much more I can take

Will you ever stop this torture?
When will you have some pity?
Why won’t you see that I’m human?
Why won’t you please let me be?

    Harrowing and, one hopes, cathartic. But beautiful language and tone – well done.

    Old memories, new problems…, all te same. They’re always with us and will always, when we let them, torture us. But only if we let them!

    This is so Painful to read, just as is Painful to look at the Angel Of Grief. May happiness find your way always. :’)
