The Killing Heart
Christy Mack

A place to die...

Is my heart.

Over and over,
A million times more,
I've died.
And then I am forced to be re-born again,
Only to suffer and be murdered.

Be murdered by my own innocent little heart,
That can't let go of this person.
Why can't it let go,
The more it holds on,
The more I bleed.

Bleeding, bleeding,
Crying myself to sleep and I wish I could say,
That my heart is empty.

It's not,
It's full of darkness and pain,
Killing me, I can't stand it.

If only I could say my heart was empty,
If only I could say it would stop beating.
Stop beating me,
Won't stop beating me,
Please stop beating me.
So I can die and stay dead.
