With Out Release

With Out Release
September 24, 2007

Thinking about what I’ve given up
In the choices I have made
In the lies and honesty I have shed on others
The emotions that have turned inside me for so long with out a release
That they mélange together, feels like a ball of tape
That has been rolling on the ground, picking up the sweetness and bitterness of everything…
I’m just absorbing
My reality, my dreams, my nightmares, my reality
I’m beautifully breaking down
So that I can build myself up again, into someone who I wish I was
Somehow every road I take tends to have a little darkness on it
But I thank god for the lightness that you bring into my life in those moments
