Shards of ice,

Those shards of ice were my killer,

But they melt today in the sun,

They were only a temporary filler,

And today they are gone.

Those drops of blood were the sign,

They remain as clear day,

They can’t be removed they’ll always be mine,

Until I finally feel free to say what I want to say.

Those pieces of metal the tool of the trade,

Remain in a drawer, remain the same,

Those pieces of metal that became my blade,

Remain in a drawer, wait to do the same,

Remain in a drawer, wait for the ice to freeze again.

Cutting it all away!

I am cutting it all away,

Carving off the growths of time,

Fighting back once more,

I won’t let this end now – I am cutting it all away.

Peeling back the layer of black,

Standing back up again,

I won’t let it end now – I am cutting it all away.

Tearing off the ravages of time,

Putting my life back in place,

I won’t let it end now – I am cutting it all away.

Using those same blades for good,

Holding them tighter than before,

But with a lightness I never knew – I am cutting it all away.

There has been a large period…

There has been a large period of emptiness,

One with a void so deep and black,

That there is no hope in hell of ever coming back.

There has been a large period of sorrow,

Filled with an immense crushing pain,

Something that cannot be fought it’s permanent like a stain.

There has been a large period of breaking down,

When the nights have been lighter than ever,

But the darkness has dragged that away,

When the faces I haven’t seen in forever,

Are back and increasing each day.

There has been a large period of oblivion,

With no falling or tumbling down,

But this period is over now and I’m back on the ground.
