Curse of Tragedy

Curse of Tragedy,

Seems I have turned to stone
That my walls insure I’ll be alone
For my honest words make me feel,
That I must constantly atone.

Destined to destroy love,
Put an end to a turtle dove,
Cause I believe what I say is true
Though I can’t say it without a shove.

Pushing back the waters that rise
Though I may sink I shall not capsize
I will remain at the bottom of the pool
Listening to all of the goodbyes

This curse of tragedy I can’t seem to shake
It blurs my vision like the venom of a snake
It is wrapped around my heart so tight
It puts me to sleep when I am wide awake.

Demanding and selfish I just might be
In my own prison I will flee
Having lost the key long ago
I have forgotten what its like to be free

Passer bys come and go
Some try to release the flow
With innocent kind actions
They try to withstand the blow

As I struggle to let the past remain
Where it must so it will not stain
Everything the future might bring
Causing unneeded strain.

I must say what I must say,
So I wont ask you to stay,
For if I did it would mean less
If you chose to linger anyway.

I will not apologize for how I feel
Truth may suck but at least it is real
Why hide what you wanted to see
Now its up to you, you must deal.
