Bound In Darkness

Poetry By: XBrokenHeartedX

I'm bound in the darkness, and I can't get up. I'm dying, slowly. Someone please help me.

Drowning in these endless waters,

Suffocating in this space with no air.

Crying the tears of never ending pain,

Suffering from this unrequited love.


These lungs collapse,

And I fall like a broken doll.

Gasping for oxygen that isn't there,

The darkness closes in.


Locking gazes with the monster inside of me,

Its touch burns away my skin.

The scream I release is unheard,

For I no longer have a voice.


Fire encases this area I lie in,

Putting the flames in my eyes.

I am nothing anymore,

But a dying mutant.


Ropes of poison lash out around me,

Grabbing my arms, my legs, and my waist.

They drag me down below,

Further than hell.


Tearing me apart,

Cutting holes in my skin.

Blood rushing from my wounds,

A pay for every sin.


Make them let go,

Please somebody, anybody, save me from this nightmare.

Untie these ropes that feast on my body,

And that take away my life like emptied souls.


But I can't get up,

Nobody will lend a helping hand.

I'm dying down here,

But nobody seems to care.


I am going blind from this everlasting darkness,

Being disintegrated by the heat of the fire.

And right now,

To die is my biggest desire.


Everyday I am on this cold surface,

Trying to break through the top.

But without love and without air,

My life will soon come to a stop.




Can anybody hear me………
