My truth. My life.

Never More




You have destroyed my innocence.

You have murdered my soul.

Everything I once was,

I am no longer.

I tremble in fear

at the thought of life.

My childhood dreams have

become nightmares.

My future belongs to the demons

you have placed inside of me.

When I look in the mirror,

I see your reflection.

Binding me, governing my

every action.

Running brings me no escape.

My every thought belongs to you.

I am no more.

  1. I like it. Very good

  2. N’abaisse pas les bras, ne te plie pas à ces démons qui détruisent avec leur méchanceté tout ce qui est beau, tout ce qui est naturel. Combats pour récupérer ton innocence et la beauté de ton âme, ne les crains pas, ils sont tous, et partout, des lâches.
