The search for inner peace after a life of loss and hate

I hide what’s inside so that I can see light
This fading dream can’t end with night
I deny my nature so that I can seek peace
Though in truth it’s no release

Holding my world with this self control
Covered in blood and still a hole
The vampire within wants to see it all end
I bleed myself dry as I try to defend

Alone in the corner of the darkest desire
I sit and hold my last burning fire
An orb so distraught that the cracks whisper pain
My soul is still here but dying in vain

Covered by a shroud that hides my true face
Reaching for an angel but still stuck in this place
Covered by a riddle that distracts devils minds
Still at a loss but still strong inside

I breathe ash and dust to appease my dead heart
Any more than this and I will depart
I express beauty and truth to soothe my cracked soul
My only hope is that I can fill the hole
