|Poem from the darker period in my life when I felt like I was dying inside.|
The door is locked, the lights are off All is quiet in the muted darkness All is quiet but my soul which screams again and again I am trapped within my own mind A glass cage that allows nothing in This is when it all comes out, in the shadows, in the sins I've prayed forgiveness upon my own part Asked myself to forget my wrongs But they torment me ceaslessly, without an end I guess that's what I deserve Blinded by my own self hate What joy can I celebrate? Cut off by my senseless self torture Leaving me in the blackness consumed within I scream for help, but it's a silent plea One that doesn't even seem to come from me For no one hears it, no one but me The door is locked, the lights are off. All is quiet in the muted darkness. All is quiet but the agony burning within me. Tweet
