Climb the highest mountain, punch the face of god

Somebody/Nobody

The laughter hurts,
Draining my cries
Until they were
Flushed down the toilet,
Like waste, like soil.

Her pain, squeezing
Death from a soul
Not ready to die,
I whisper my goodbyes
And weep, forgetting
Everything I meant to say.

The people stare,
They all talk but they
Aren't saying anything.
You pushed past me,
Into the nobody I was,
Bringing out the
Somebody I could be.
