Asleep while awake my body dreams of pain and abuse.
Intolerable cruelty leaves scars of black rotting Hell.
Imbibed with hate my soul drinks my wounds.
Filled with fear I remain captive to my primitive self.
Walking through the darkness of my thoughts I yearn to scream.
Another re-enactment of the cycle ensues.
Stop, stop, stop! I die each day.
Youth long gone, wisdom not here.
Lift this cloak of secrecy and reveal your lies.
I'm tired of fighting; I'm fresh out of gas.
Refute the tears because they're meaningless.
Only love will save me now.
An odd duck who likes even numbers.
