The Primal Wound

from TwentyTwentyTwenty by Torrential Downpour




mother gone
abandonment of the new born light
Ismael lost
looking for the end
no way out
this is but a dream, this is a fucking horrid dream, wake me up

gross indifference to your kid
nothing to behold
teaching me the ways i have learned
i am a product of hate
this barred love
mazlows needs denied
colors my internal fears red
a vibrant reminder that i hate existing
six months alone
no love
no hope
i scream
it burns charred
burn it up, my heart

breathe deep - close your eyes
don't worry - inside you will heal again
every step you take
brings me
closer to you now

time will heal every wound that you have amassed
looking to short winters, in the sun we shall bask
feeling all this hatred for which i have not asked
hoping that this transitory moment will pass
learn to love myself, oh man now there is a task
hate runs deep inside but really how can it last
want to kill myself but really that is the past
falling down, i get up just to put on a mask

please let me be
don't look at me
calling for strength inside - i'm burning red
the sunken pit
internal shit

crossing arms
battle scars
marks my skin all the way up
adoption breeds self hate
i am the fate of the world
engulfed by the sun - we're all scorched
infernal ways
of being afraid
presses the knife in my brain
oh (x7)
ground gives way to the fall

crumble in dust, bury
the hate thats grown in me
follow my heart of gray
theres more I have to say

(phone message to Ismael)

inhale into your lungs love
draw deep breaths and sigh - you're safe and beautiful - you are
lucky to exist at all
your friends are lucky too
celebrate the love you share
don't dwell on the past boo
in you is me and in me theres always you.
