A Lonely Room

Screaming from shadows cast aside
The sun drifts away from where I hide
Such darkness echoes through these halls
Such painful reminders upon its walls

Walking alone I count each room
Containing the memories I now exhume
Such life I seemed to once portray
Such naivety begging to be betrayed

Dreaming beyond the steps ahead
A place I no longer dare to tread
Where weaving ghosts call out my name
Where whispering demons discuss my shame

Desperate to flee and hide once more
But numbness has struck my empty core
Such reason to no longer be
Such painful surroundings envelope me

Calmness as I traverse these stairs
Darkness ahead, but I don’t care
Ghosts welcoming me home
I slip into bed, and I’m alone

    Your rhyming is quite nice without giving up the thoughts you have expressed, Ian
