Hope all gone
Locked Inside. . .
The darkness zone.
Fear is coming
Like a plague
It's miserable slave.
I try to break free
From the chains.
It wont work
I'm becoming insane.
Nothing helps me
Words are lost
No one can carry
My heavy cross.
Then I feel
A searing pain
I can see again.
Why oh why!
Am I still alive
When all I wanted
Was just to die?
. . . . . . .
It turns out, it's been seven days
From the time that I took my life.
If I was in doubt of my careless ways,
The reality has filled me with strife.
Through that time of pointless pain
Why was I called to live?
I'd led my life off a ragged cliff
And I had so much to forgive. . .
Somehow during that long long week
My heart had carried on beating.
I realized it's not people I need help from
It's me... whom I have to stop cheating.
