Crushed heart, lost breath

Taking a deep breath
Holding it in
The pain holds me
Tighter than a vice
This life
Crushes me
Makes me hate myself
Which isn't fair
But what the hell
Everything I do
Everything I say
Rings a bell
And I am thrown
From the ring
The curtain falls
And I am escorted
Off the stage
But I keep trying
Keep crying
Dreams are shattered
Hopes scattered
Unto the wind
For I love
So I lose
For I feel
So I shriek in pain
But I will go on
Because the only thing worse
Than failing
Is quitting
My grieving will never end
So the bleeding
Pours from me
