Troops of demons storm un-swept streets
while walking among innocent angels they pry on those weak enough...
       They try.

Sealed emotions locked in a crimson heart
and sealed with blackened kisses.
Tears escaping eyes like the spirit escaping the body in the end.
       I can no longer comprehend.

Madness and rage fill me with anguish
I want to feel like i used to 
but all that's left in me is a hole full of painful feelings I can not feel.
        But oh do they take a toll.

I hurt myself trying to get a response out of the numbness
But all that's there in the end...
        Is the abrasion atop my skin.

So cry me one million tears
let me drown in them with the salt filling the empty hole in my heart.
Because I know that all that has happened...
         Is merely just the start.
