trapped inside my own body
my personal darkness is my only friend
trapped in the only form i know
in a place where even the monsters
try to avoid like the plague they are
the darkness in me is stronger
than ever before but i control it
not completely, granted
but i am able to hide it behind
yet another thousand masks
maybe i should leave people alone
and hide in my darkness
because there's little they can do
except help me talk about it
but who truly understands
about the darkness inside me?
who can decipher the codes
i write so unwillingly?
who can help me
conquer and tame
the lion of the darkness?
who will be the one
to save me from
my own personal torture?
