My Screams smile
In the depths of pain darkness descends
Sleep and I become the best of friends.
Nightmares haunt my many moods,
Giving my mind time to brood.
I cannot escape I enter further into the abyss,
I reach for compassion but met by insanity’s kiss.
“Where do I go?” My screams smile. No one can hear,
No sight, no sound, just my lonely journey into fear.
“Release me. Please release me from misery’s hold,
I feel a chill taking over, my heart is growing cold.”
Crying does little good for no one shares my pain,
Ashes before my eyes, fiery embers tears, of rain.
