Screams in my head that no one hears.
They don’t see my invisible tears.
It is dark and lonely in my soul.
No one can hear my stories untold.
I wonder why I am here to live.
When I have nothing of value to really give.
I wish the bleakness would let me go.
The world has brighter things to show.
I fight the darkness that tries to consume.
But it binds my joy in its ugly tomb.
It pulls me under its web of dark.
Always leaving my heart with marks.
I cry, fight, fight, fight the pain.
If it takes more time, I will go insane.
I want to be free of this emptiness.
But that only comes with love’s true kiss.
