Lost and Pain

My heads spinning
My heart's pounding
Why does it feel like I'm sinking instead of swimming

I know, I know
It's just my head playing tricks on me
But I can't help the fear that grips me

I lose control
My thoughts scatter
My once calm composure is now just a crumbling mess

I knew I wasn't invincible
But I wasn't expecting so much hurt
I knew it was going to be difficult
But I wasn't expecting so much resistance
I knew there was a battle
And yet I pleaded ignorance

You would think that after so much pain I've known
I would expect it
...but I didn't

And now my heart is in shreds
With my mind farther than I've ever known
