The Torment Within

Fear looms his dark head over mine
I take cover behind my consciousness, only to buy time
I look around my oh-so-familiar world
But It seems to be filled with tales untold
Making me feel like a stranger among my own kin
Being punished for some long forgotten sin
I look for a respite, there has to be a way out
But the sound of my tears falling, drowns out my shout
Searching for aa shoulder to cry on
I stumble and fall, but still I look on
The smiles I remember have turned into frowns
Turning my honey coloured world into a gloomy brown

I try to run, but theres nowhere to hide
And suddenly I feel Fear sitting by my side
Cupping my ears, I scream for help
But what comes out of my lips is barely a yelp
I am confused, depressed, there is many a doubt
Maybe the Fear beside me is not without
It is within me, filling my entire being
Suffocating me from inside…
I struggle hard, I try to break free
But Darkness overpowers me…
But Darkness overpowers me…
