  • How you feel is such a silly question when the answer isn’t what anyone wants to here.
    Time comes and goes, but this everlasting sorrow has always been here to stay.
    Sadness is an epidemic that plagues my very soul.
    Tears once stained the page, now to be replaced with the sweet crimson relief.

    Not even the stars could shine brighter then my smile once did, yet day after day the ice slowly overtakes my once warm heart.
    People underestimate how much the little things truly mean when time itself cannot measure the longing for love that clings to my heart.
    The door slams shut leaving everlasting darkness.
    Your ghost never leaves my side, always reminding me of what could have been.

    Gone is the laughter,
    Gone is the smile,
    Gone is the feeling,
    Gone is the flame of life.

    The drawer slowly creeks open to reveal the blank face I once kept locked away.
    Empty eyes are once again filled with lies for those who pass me by.
    Eventually you get to the point where you are too far gone to ever be normal again.
    Freedom is such a sweet vice when you’ll always be trapped in a cage.

    Fear seems like such a sweet idea when you no longer fear even death.
    The head hangs low and the arms hang limp.
    Rattling echoes through the hallway as the emotions spill out onto the floor.
    It seems I’ve finally been granted my wings that will take me away from this world I so detest..
