Cry Mercy

Misery uninvited comes, cry mercy

It’s too personal to share, unworthy

A curtain drops, then comes darkness

Any light that gets through brings harshness

An act to play must hide away

Let no one know you feel this way

The push the pull only makes it worse

Those who care most try hardest to coerce

Makes you want to scream, cry mercy

From the depths you just don’t care

Alone is comfort an answer to prayer

Until it isn’t, your skin to crawl

Repetition is all you know

It’s like a drug, addiction to grow

Up then down, rare the days level come

From the well fresh water take some

Far away please to stay, controversy

Misery uninvited comes, cry mercy
