I cry alone,
In my shrinking world,
Nobody else can fit,
Their fists too curled,
To come through the door,
Anymore.

I wanna scream,
Drive back the walls,
Stop the crushing,
Halt all the stupid falls,
Say goodbye to what's foul,
Right now.

I yell silently,
Hoping for someone to hear,
Someone to save me,
But nobody will I fear,
Facing myself on my own,
Tearing to bone.

I bleed secrets,
When all I have left is scars,
And hope escapes forever,
Black swallows the last stars,
Pleading with joy in my head,
Transfers to red.

I covet pain,
The sole escape for my soul,
A calming razor,
To make me whole,
I won't pretend it's right,
Bringing light.

I don't eat,
Hunger makes me real,
Helps wash me clean,
Numbs everything I feel,
I know that I should,
If I could.

I will break,
It's gone on too long,
Been falling too far,
To tell it's wrong,
And I can get out,
That I doubt.

I can't deal,
Only one road left to try,
The untrodden dark,
You'll all wonder why,
But I won't be able to say,
So far away.
