Her and I
My alter ego is trying to kill me, she hates the way I live my life.
Always hanging in the shadows the anonymity brings her strife.
I try to hold back, but she's too strong for me.
I'm weak, which she can easily see.
I hate her and love her all at the same time.
She wants my life, but it's mine.
I hold on tight and shut my eyes.
Pounding screaming I hear her cries.
I can't give in, no not this time.
She went too far, she crossed a line.
I know what I have to do, but I'm scared.
I don't want to be on my own.
I've always had her there.
Still I lock her out for days on end.
Nowhere to hide she cannot fend.
I feel her leaving as peace sets in.
It was either her or me.
Now finally my life can truly begin.
