Come to me
dear old friend
make me forget
The stabbing

My eyes bleed tears
For nothing makes
The spinning stop
I can’t get away

Bound to a care
That means nothing
In the end
I’m standing alone

Sharing doesn’t help
Nor does the dark
It’s indifferent and proud
So I fall on my sword

My strength fails
the system crashes
Just bad code I guess
All I get is a beach ball
Or blue screen

I can’t handle it
So slow to move
Not restoring
Corrupt and old
throw me away

I’m broken
Slinking along
With squeak and wobble
I’m no fun
So move on

I can’t pretend
I don’t know
It’s too obvious now
The stories don’t hold
And reality strikes
Merciless

Send a prayer
For the fractured
And poor
For the weak
And the foolish
For I am with them
The fallen

Come abide with me
Whisper comfort
And hold my hand
Why would you love
Such a miserable person
Such a pathetic me

And yet you remain and hold
Bind me up and call me still
You live with the broken
And tell me I’m whole
