Sitting here, silently stitching myself
back together after he has been around.
In ear-piercing silence I can
hear my own heart break
and every time I scream into the darkness
it echoes without a sound.
I'm slowly crawling way towards the light
when the shadows once again overpower my mind and I fall,
fall deep below.
depressed child with saddened smile, tortured mind and burning soul.
Adolescent dreams that were never meant to come true,
now lost and buried forever.
Hollow screams once again echo in the darkness
as the smell of twisted, rotten hands lingers on my skin.
My eyes stinging from acid tears
burning their way into my skull.
Deprived of sleep and hope I sit here,
silently stitching myself back together.
