I was there and yet not,

floating just underneath the surface,

as if under a thin sheet of ice,

as hard and as cold as steel.


Caught in the tides of a life,

going through the stages,

those hormones,

those nights alone.


No other warmth on this skin,

am I diseased?

No, it is just my foul mind,

playing tricks again.

Under the influence.

Sitting in my corner,

eyes cast around,

the room is dizzy,

but I am only still.


An outstretched hand,

a valiant prince,

come to tear me from the grips,

and bring me happiness.


This is no reality,

the world is too harsh,

to bring happiness to those,

who are...
