Keeping up with nothing

I can’t keep up with your pace,
Is this the end of my road,
Are we calling quits,
On life,
On us,
I’m a mistake.

I knew it,
I knew it right from the beginning,
I tried telling you time and again,
Listen,
No, you won’t
And now look where we are,
Leaving me with a hole,
Cause you promised a forever,
When a forever was never meant to be.

You’ve always been a few steps ahead,
I’ve always fallen short,
To give me the illusion that we could keep running,
You stopped and slowed down,
But that’s not who you are,
I’m dragging you down,
I’m dead weight.

Cut me loose,
Be free,
You’re just a young bird baby,
You’re just learning to fly,
You don’t need the burden that is me,
I’m the soul that takes other souls.
A grim reaper disguised as a beautiful bride.

I thought I could be selfish,
Keep you close,
For myself,
For my sense of calamity,
Lies.
I’ve been giving in all aspects in life,
How could then I,
Be so selfish,
To the most important person in my life.

I know it’s your choice,
To stay,
To listen,
To have to deal with this,
But I’m scared that you are just as giving as me,
While this may keep us together,
I wonder,
Just how happy you will be.

Falling,
Falling,
I do the selfish deed,
I take my body,
Down,
Far down into a world,
Where you can’t reach,
I leave you,
While leaving myself.

I am sorry.

  1. I’m not gonna like this because you’re not a fucking burden. You’re not a grim reaper in disguise (even tho I liked that line). You’re not a burden. Haven’t my blog updates gone inside your head you bitch? YOU ARE YOU, YOU DO YOU. YOU GO FUCKING LOVE YOURSELF. YOU DON’T NEED OTHERS. YOU DON’T WEIGH PEOPLE DOWN, YOU LIFT THEM UP YOU BITCH!
