How can I pretend that I don’t listen to the voices down stairs?

How can I pretend that my mother and father aren’t fighting again?

How can I ignore my soul weeping in pain?

How can I tell myself I was screaming in vain?

I could feel the words crawling into my mind,

As if they were monsters came alive.

They wanted me dead, they wanted my soul;

And now I’m facing them all alone.

It was a nightmare I condemned to live in.

It was sorrow drowning me in.

It was a torment burdens my soul.

 I was tired, tired from it all.

Oh God! I’m falling.

torn apart..

From my dreams and hopes into the dark.

How can I stop the screams?

How can I tell them what they need?

How can I pull myself from this ebony morbid sea?

How can I kill my pain?

How can I not scream in vain?
