Tingling alongside my cheek you plot the course
All consuming with a destructive force

Gush in and out before the challenge is met
Slap my face to remind me you have not left

Vanish the trying with you around
My head keeps filling with thoughts that bring me down

My heart will stop, killing the beat
Bleeding it dry for failures reap

Fly out of my life before nothing is left
My soul is wretched and heavy with regret

Let the end of questions halt this breeze of doubt
This time is different, I will stay devout

I draw a shield to this destruction you seek to evoke
I used to invite you failure, but now I invite hope
