    Look at you your pitiful

    Useless so forgettable

    Why are you the way you are

    Why do you look the way you do

    I just don’t get you

    I just can’t understand you



    Downing you only elevates me

    Because it masks the pain of my reality

    Makes me feel better, When you feel so low

    Downing you helps me to disguise my tainted soul



    When Im hurting you, When I make you upset

    All the pain of my existence, I breifly forget

    I will do whatever it takes

    just for a simple moments escape

    from this dark imprisoned place

    of a life that I dont wish to face



    I know that by my hurting you

    I only come to bring you to

    the same misery that I go through

    But as selfish as it seems

    I simply say better it be you than me

    Yea, that's the way some feel, only happy when they make you feel sad, what a pitiful existence. Liked the way you brought this directly to the point.

    they say misery loves company &
    forgiveness heals the soul and brings
    peace... its our choice to be happy or sad.

    an excellent expression of emotions

    thanks for sharing :)

    feelin'it souldeep!
