Hurt, anger, emptiness, despair and fear,
Pass through my world accompanied by a lonely tear,
Betrayal and deceit rear their ugly head,
Hearts turn black and wither, falling dead,
Confusion runs rampant and out of control,
Black feelings, cold as ice touch my soul,
Lost in this world so scared and alone,
Standing in the cold rain soaked to the bone.
The hurt and the anger let's me know I'm alive,
It's the emptiness and despair I fear I won't survive,
Reaching up from this dark place where I reside,
I realize there's no one there to help me outside,
The voices I am hearing and the shapes I see,
Are merely shadows of the people I thought them to be.
My cries for help fall on uncaring ears,
As my cup runneth over with thousands of tears,
Here is where I belong on the outside looking in,
Almost close enough to touch but falling short again.
Destined to remain in darkness for eternity,
Why is this how it has to be?
