Anagnorisis - Disgust & Remorse, Pt. 2

For so long I've hated this reflection
I've disfigured myself to lose sight of you
For so long I've begged for an end to this story
All the while it's been me with the pen in my hand

My greatest weakness is my strongest enemy
Always coming back to level me

Perceptions and fluctuations
Illusions of failures

I was born to everything I hate

I've never been enough
I've never done enough
A lack of actions: my grand declaration
Without the ownership of guilt I have nothing left to cling to

Yet this matter keeps me captive

If life has turned to penance, then no more fleeting moments
I'll burn my world and all I love to be at peace without your pity

If this is the sum of it all, then the moments
Leading me here have led me astray
That which is crying should also be dead
As peace is a distant lullaby for the fragile and the weak
Taught to hate myself, through hating you
Lessons in humility by watching you
You've fucked my life for far too long
Let me live my own regret
