Sacrifice

Sacrifice

Every word I speak is an obscenity in disguise.
Every truth I speak is hidden in 1000 lies.

Did it ever occur to you that it’s MY life I despise?
Laugh away the pain,

Cry in silent agony for sleep’s guise

Run away to hide my pain,

Shun the sunshine.
Hold my head as the earth quakes,

No one hears my cries.

Words and silence both are equal destroyers,
Both my demise;

Overwhelmed by life’s tragic traumatic travesty.
