Hurt

There is only so much a person can take before they break.

In a world that is selfish

It is normal to be cold

Dreaming of a knight in armor

That is filling for my soul

You speak words of a snake charmer

Piercing my heart like a bullet hole

Only I if I had a clue you would fold

Out of fear from pain and deceit

I let my emotions ride in the backseat

Standing in the mist of the rain

My stomach twist—Oh boy am I drain
