Do you feel pain, when it happens?
Because remorse fills my being, as I
Rip your soul from yours,
Allowing your memories, your fears
And your sense to overtake my own,
If only for a moment.
It is not my intention, to cause you pain,
To cause you loss,
But it is the task I have been given,
As every soul, every last breath I take
Turns my being a little bit darker.
I lost myself long ago.
I am the cause for fear, for concern
As you stare into the pits of my empty eyes,
Understanding what must be done.
All I ask is for forgiveness.
Your family will grieve, as I take away a
Piece of them as well.
All I want is forgiveness,
It does not get easier for me,
As every soul I take causes me
To lose a piece of myself,
A piece of my own being.
All I want is forgiveness.
I just want you to understand.
