In my solitude thoughts take flight

To a dark place I once called home.

How I try with all my might,

But the biting wind creeping through my lone window

Reminds me of a time where my heart and soul were made of black ice.

A fright, a nightmare that lives on

Day and night.

I close my eyes, my breathing stills.

My heartbeat quickens and I feel the chills,

Slowly crawling, pinching at my neck.

As I try to keep my emotions in check.

The chains, memories, the mistakes

They bind me to these four walls.

Save me, save me is my desperate plea

But no one listens, no one ever hears me.

I search for the light, I outstretch my hand

But he's waiting for me,

The Devil.

With his fiery red eyes and his twisted smile

Ready to devour my flesh and bone

No, I won't give him what he planned.

So here I sit day after day

A war raging inside that will never go away..
