The poem is below.



Down,unable to get up,
cut deep makes me weep 
drowning in my own pains
makes me feel so drained 
like I am going insane ,

I have nothing to give
all I can do is to forgive
I don't know how
I'm going to make my way out
every time I try to be nice
I become broken like ice,

I made myself move along 
that old cold bridge 
I feel the chains heavy on me
darkness and wet 
is were I was left for dead  ,

Prisoner in darken dreams
Oh, how this place 
makes me scream
I feel locked away 
while he holds the key,

inside my mind is a world of pain
memories that will make one 
go into a nightmare 
when I cry 
no one cares to dry my eyes 
this is hard times
that plays on my mind,

I can't afford to give up now
I gone this far like a star 
with a broken heart
lost ,cut without a wish 
things are getting tight
this is so unbelievable,

I gotta find my way out 
I need to be able to feel passion
Love and not overthink  
I need to breath and set my heart free
until then 
I will stay cold numb .
