Surrounded by darkness
I cling to any light I might find,
else my sight is hindered-
leaving me blind.
My heart numbed with empty despair,
a sad and lonely soul indeed
with love's burden to bear.
Teardrops should fall like rain,
but they don't.
A shell of a man filled with
nothing but echoes.
Cavernous hollow living corpse clown
like the walking dead
pretending that it's all a game
and sunny days-
I feel ashamed.
But I can't show my heart or inner being,
for they generate confusion and repel desire.
my pain is-
sucking, swallowing, suffocating.
No strength left to pull myself out.
I scream, I shout-
but nobody hears me...
or nears me...
it scares me.
