Another one of my least favs. This one is a bit lengthy and is rough in its read but my message was there when writing it.

Crashing, Crumbling
i feel so alone
my life has gone so wrong
where have i failed
what have i done wrong
can it be mended

Wanting, Wishing
alone and in misery
is that all i have left
am i not worth more than that 
when did the freedoms of life and love 
become my chamber of chaos and insanity .
I am losing the grip on my thread
i am losing the will to live
how to hold on
how to grasp life once again 

Distant, Distraught
why have i done this
why do i do this
is there nothing but sightless night
nothing to touch
nothing to feel
no one to hold
no one to care

Struggle, Strain
I clench my fists in fury
i am lost
can you find me ,would you find me
can anyone but me easy my pain
would anyone ease my suffering
or i am forgotten
what lies before me on my relentless walk
is there a fork in my path
or an impassible marsh
what will come next
i know there will be more pain , and chaos 
but will i find my cure
will i find what i am looking for
do i know what i am looking for

Weary and Relentless,
on i walk
