Screaming and Bleeding

Scream me a lullaby
Bleed me some tears tonight

My only wish
Was to make you proud
So I tried and I tried and tried
But you never looked
You never saw
You never cared
For me
You never cared

Scream a lullaby
Bleed me some tears tonight
Because I'm ready to go
Willing to go

My only wish
Was to make you proud
But you never cared for me
You never cared
You never cared for me
You never cared
I'll find my own way
Home
Somewhere I belong
I'll find my place
My home

The past is the past
And we'll never get it back
But you persist
So I insist
Scream me a lullaby
Bleed me some tears tonight

And as the sky's falling down
My hopes are broken
Dreams are only dreams
I'll walk this road alone
Scream at the top of my lungs
Until my voice is gone
Bleed until my pain is gone
Until I feel better
Until I feel better

Nothing's going to bring me back
The past is the past
Trying to make up lost time
You're way too late
But you persist
So I insist
Scream me a lullaby
Bleed me some tears tonight

My only wish
Tonight
Was to make you proud
But you never cared for me
Never cared for me
I'll find someplace
Where I belong
Scream at the top of my lungs
Bleed and feel better
Someday

I'll feel better

Some day

Some night

Maybe tonight

Some depressing shit there man. But even in darkness there's beauty, right?

That sounds like a song. I wonder if you play the guitar.

It is a bit depressing. But it made me think back on the things i've been going through and your poem just felt ... right?!!
