Fearlessly walking down this alley,
my eyes come across empty souls;
no heaven or hell to behold.
All around me,
never a direction nor a destination.
I feel my own soul slowly breaking away.
Years of pain and confusion
unfold before me.
My thoughts fade like the setting sun,
that will never again wake me from the dark.
The walls appear to be closing in.
My thoughts run together,
no longer able to hold onto my sanity.
no longer am I one.
So many questions unanswered,
words left unsaid-
feelings that will never be known.
The past is lost to yesterday,
the future is gone to tomorrow,
the present is stolen,
by the here and now.
