Lost luggage unclaimed

Drowning in utter pain
black dog bites
Once again
I can't breath
I cannot cope
Heading for the torrid gutrer
via the slippery slope
Lost in the srounding confounding darkness
Where I blindly fear to tread
I crawl into the sanctuary of a shell
of my bed
A bed of nails that stab so deep
My only escape and allie is sleep
But when I awake
My overwhelming hits me like a bolt of lightening
And i quake
I stare down from the edge of the abbis
Calling me invitingly
To jump
And feel deaths kiss.

How much longer can I carry on
When life is empty meaningless and all joy of living has gone
Umbilical chord severed from the world
So lonely and cut to the bone
Once I lived and had so much love to give
but it was never good enough
i live my life in limbo
With no one to love
Lost luggage no one claims
Never loved never missed
A human punch bag hit with an iron fist
Pain hits me like falling razor blades like rain
I follow the same path to a dead end street again and again

All I ever wanted was a simple life
A  child or two and a loving wife
my ship of dreams sunk
And never came.

Face pushed into the dirt
A fading name on a tombstone
No one knows
Hidden in a grave yard over grown and neglected
Out of sight out of mind
For once I dwellled in hell
Who cares.
