The Devil Inside.

I long for the day where I take my last breath.
Relief from this hole that inhabits my chest.
Escape my fractured mind and embrace beautiful death.
I long for the day where I take my last breath.

But this life isn’t done with me yet.
I made a deal with the devil and I owe him a debt.
His claws in my neck refuse to relent and so upward I climb so very hell bent.
But it’s hard to ascend when you’re barely alive.

I’m tired of destroying all of my loved ones lives.
I’m tired of fighting, struggling so hard to survive.
I’m tired of dealing with the devil inside.
But he won’t let me go until he gets what he’s owed.
So upward I climb to repay what I owe.

The days are too long and the nights take their toll.
But I can’t leave this world until I’ve emptied my soul.
There is no light to illuminate the path I now follow.
But I carry on through the darkness despite feeling hollow.

I long for the day the devil and I part ways.
I long for the day I let go of the pain.
I long for the day where I take my last breath.
I long for the day I embrace beautiful death.
