Need the Pain

Inward Thoughts

Because I need the pain

I need not to feel my life happening

I won’t open up and free my veins

Because I need the pain

I don’t want to understand what I can’t understand

Because I need the pain

I need to stay frozen in acid rain

Because I need the pain

I don’t want to see

What I want to be

I’ll keep the blain

Because I need the pain

I’ll paint my life in blood

But I won’t let it stain

Because I need the pain

As I lay moribund, maybe

Remind me of the day

My time has reached its last decay

But until then I’ll laugh and play

Because I need this. I need the pain.
