I can't live here anymore

© Jeffrey Hellman 1991




I can't live here anymore

Once again I'm out the door

The people that once liked me

All seem now to despise me

I can't live here anymore


I feel trapped within a prism

Many faces see them glisten

But inside devoid of light

Captured by my fright

A suffocating womb


All I gave were good intentions

Crippled by reflections

Of my fear from past rejections


It's not that I don't love you

I only need to trust you

If you drop me and I shatter

Perhaps to you it doesn't matter

There's my fear


Broken up, broken down

One direction turning round

All the same, not insane

Imprisoned in my mind
