If pain were a person

Nov 26, 2015 2:48 PM

---just a little heads up, I'm having massive pain today, so pain is my muse...if you need to stay peppy today, don't read this yet---

If pain were a person
You would see she's torturing me
Inside a soundproofed room
Where only I can hear

If pain were a person
I'd stand up and fight her
But she'd call to me
Remind me of my weakness
Make me doubt I should live at all

If pain were a person
You'd call her the stalker not me
She's always there with wide eyes
Ready to pull you into her grasp the second you think you might be happy

If pain were a person
Maybe you'd lock her up for real
Try to drown her
Then cry out as you feel her die
She's a part of you
You don't get the choice to say goodbye

If pain were a person
She'd be the strong warrior
The one you want by your side in a battle

If pain were a person
She'd be so familiar
A comfort in the night
Even as you bang your head against the wall
You let her lie against your shoulder
Feel her pulse in every breath

If pain were a person
Only like you or me
Maybe we'd all fall in love
Or maybe we'd all be dead
