White Halls

white halls and dancing bodies
--and deadened eyes--
false smiles and fake laughter
--let me out! let me go!--
painted faces and easy lies
--and shattered mind and shattered heart--
bright glaring lights
--a prison cell--
and harsh music
--i dont belong here! let me go!--
subtle comments
--and cruel all the same--
laughing jokes
--and hurting all the same--
mock scorn
--that maybe isnt in mockery--
disdainful words
--in false jest--
a look
--a festering wound--
a glance
--please let me go! it hurts--
and a thousand betrayals
--please - i'll do anything--
unforgettable hurt
--just let me go--
aching pain
--for else i must dieā€¦--
