Confession – Manic Mondays

MMConfession
it’s been a while since
I could hold my head up
since I could call you
I can’t remember it all,
the consequences…
I can say that I wasn’t
myself…well
since I’ve gone and
fucked things up
and all that shit,
everything I can’t remember
all that I’ve gone and
fucked up again, again
I feel this …
just go away

A black out poem for Laura’s Manic Monday Challenge. The prompt word, “Confession” and the song prompt, “It’s Been a While” by Staind (Lyrics with black out (cross-outs) below)

 

“It’s Been A While”
by Staind

[Verse 1]
And it’s been awhile since I could hold my head up
And it’s been awhile since I first saw you
And it’s been awhile since I could stand on my own two feet again
And it’s been awhile since I could call you

[Chorus]
And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve stretched myself beyond my means

[Verse 2]
It’s been awhile since I can say that I wasn’t addicted
And it’s been awhile since I can say I love myself as well and
And it’s been awhile since I’ve gone and fucked things up just like I always do
And it’s been a while, but all that shit seems to disappear when I’m with you

[Chorus]
And everything I can’t remember
As fucked up as it all may seem
The consequences that I’ve rendered
I’ve gone and fucked things up again, again

[Bridge]
Why must I feel this way?
Just make this go away
Just one more peaceful day
