Pain is my Relief

Looking in the mirror,
Looking at me,
Caged and locked inside my head,
Just wanting to be free.

‘Stay strong’, I say to myself
An advice in vain,
Crying at my reflection,
There’s no escape from this pain.

So unhappy, so broken,
A flightless bird without wings,
Helpless, powerless, just so defeated,
Song of lament, my heart sings.


Can somebody pick up all my pieces?
Fix my damaged soul?
Bring happiness into my life,
Replace this sadness that’s beyond control?


Yet I can’t run away from the pain,
My heart’s forever indebted to grief
For even though it’s slowly killing me,
Pain is my only relief.
