Take my eyes
I have no more use for them
Blindness is so much more
Than what I use them for
And my sense of smell
Take that as well
I have no use for it
No more the world of roses bloom
In this wretched, sightless place
Take everything
For I have gone insane
No more to bear this weight of life
Save my soul

    You do indeed sound desperate. Not sure if this is reality based or imagination, but there is always help out there. Also, we all go through dark times, so hang in there, as there is always hope for a brighter tomorrow. Seriously, life can change in an instant. Good luck. And thank you for your comment. Love, Shar
