THIS TORTUROUS LIFE

THIS TORTUROUS LIFE

Is this life make-believe?

I cope not with the life struggles that beset me
For they are hell-bent on wrecking me 
Forever seeking me out 
They harangue most grievously 
Damaging me irrevocably

No one it seems can rescue me 
 
A wretched existence 
And a noose is this life to me 
All I know is woe 
And gnawing misery

How can I be strong
Without help to overcome 
Being me?

My wounds heal not 
For I pick them apart deliberately
I am accustomed to 
The pain of surviving
I am an almost empty shell 
Filled with vitriolic animosity 

When will I be set free
From abandoned hopes
And this darkness of despair?

Oh what a cruel joke
Is this existence that 
Vexes 
Antagonises 
And tortures me 

I continue existing from day to day
I feel like I might live to eternity
Something that is not good for me

I have survived this far 
But only barely
I am ungraciously unhappy
The grave is a place I would
Welcome gladly

I tangoed with the hammer 
That is life and lost
Deep scars I now parade  
From every blow
With an existence of pure misery
