As I take a deep breath tonight
Enjoying the cool night air
I am aware that I am not alone
I have with me my very good friend:
She rarely calls before coming over
She drops by whenever she wants to
Sometimes, she even comes with a couple
Of her own companions:
Misery and Guilt.
They know me very well
After all, Pain has told them a lot about me
They too, like her, flouts common courtesy
And always come barging right in to my mind
Bringing with them: Sadness and Despair.
It is always a rollercoaster with them all
One I can't seem to get off, no matter how hard I try
So I became used to them,
Started playing the perfect host
To Pain, Misery and Guilt and all they bring with them.
