Eternal

Dark and Deep.... My Eyes wont adjust.... The air stale and dank... a pungent odor of must........................ This is where I live inside my mind I am awake it`s not a dream....................................Many more Years of suffering is my fate..... If I thought anyone would listen I would scream.............................................. The Universe has passed sentence and realized my every fear....................................My Body so alone and cold the terror overwhelming yet I dont lose one tear........................................... The blackness is eternal the solitude infinite.... crying for help would be futile and hurt more as it would be in vein........................................... As I can not be rescued from this Abyss and for my troubles I would only feel more pain....................................... The maximum punishment was handed down as death is welcome but out of reach............................. and loneliness will plague me for the rest of my life as I cant leave my children today because I have many more things to teach..........................................So for those in earshot of my written word please understand there are worse things than Death......................................... Like living in hell inside your mind........ Desperate to exhale your very last breath.....................................
