Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 158
Suffocating

Trying to suffocate myself because
I can still remember the little things I miss
The things you're doing for him
And they're locked inside of my mind

In order to be honest, to be a good friend
I listen dearly, and I try to keep my mouth closed
So I'm stuffing a cover down my throat
I can't sleep, maybe if I just suffocate it'll be okay

Jealousy is what gets to me, it hurts so much
Every time I think about you, I can only think
Of how you used to talk to me, how you made me feel
And I'm sitting hear, wondering, what if

Yeah, those two words haunt me tonight
Crushing me like a plant underneath your foot
The little things, they're what I can never forget
How you used to smile at me, and you used to laugh

Most of all, I miss your voice, the beauty it held
Maybe that's why I don't call anymore, because
I know I'd be hooked on you like the strongest drug
And because I wouldn't be able to take the pain

So I'm suffocating myself tonight, trying to lose the pain
But it haunts me to my grave, your words echo in my heart
They tear apart what little love I have left inside of me
Quilt and blanket, go down my throat, make me choke

Let me die this death, because, woe is me, I chose to love
And when I love I always lose, I never get a chance to choose
I try to destroy and burn your memory with hers
But it only makes this misery hurt more, good god, I think I miss you
