I build my walls, my world,
And everything tumbled down,
After each labored breath I took.
A solitary drop of sweat fell,
But I kept going and going,
Until I was gone.
Brick by brick,
The world waves goodbye,
And bit by bit,
I wave hello to sweet solitude.
I sit in my corner,
And stars light up my once dark, empty eyes;
I am contented.
But the hours!
They flew by so fast!
So fast, that the clock's hands
Don't seem to move at all.
Time erased itself
From my little piece of ecstasy,
My one place of isolated bliss.
The lonely air slowly suffocated me
And the dark crushed my soul,
Until I can no longer see the light.
My heart flew away so suddenly at that moment,
Back to where it belonged,
In a place I can't quite remember.
My memory is blurred;
There's nothing but vague flashes of nothingness.
I then heard a cry, a most disturbing sound;
The ugly void in my chest
Begged for company,
And so Misery found its new home.
Hope abandoned me,
Her long flowing locks trailing behind her,
And Faith and Joy left with their sister.
I am now naught but a soulless shell,
Devoid of life and happiness.
I hate it here,
In my own secret,
I swim in pools of my own regret,
And dive in my ocean of tears.
I long achingly for the world,
But I cannot have it.
It is no longer in my reach.
My eyes cannot even comprehend
How far I have gone.
I am so far away,
So very, very distant.
I am so far gone
That I can't see where I am
And can't move from where I sit.
I am numb, and I miss being able to feel.
I had made one fatal mistake.
One that will make me dream
And haunt me forever in my sleep
And even when I am wide awake.
I had built my walls,
I had built my world,
But I had forgotten to build a way out.
Now there's no way out.
There's no way out.
I am trapped.
