I smiled as my blood poured out of me
The wounds gushing forth life effortlessly
The priest frantically sewing me together
Neverminding my body now light as a feather
My soul slowly leaving as the light of my eyes dies
I found the death’s truths easier to bear than life’s lies
So I gave up my ghost of my own accord
Existence had a toll I could no longer afford
Don’t try to follow for you will never again see my face
I left behind the pale parody in the casket without a trace
Did you ever love me as you claimed?
Will my memory only ever evoke shame?
I can hear my voice becoming more haunting as I sing
It echoes into the dark void as a despairingly tiny thing
You all worked so hard to secure my soul’s survival
But you didn’t know it was already dead on arrival
