and it all begins with doubt

shame screaming forth, pouring out

blind-sided by your own paranoia

voices of echoes flit through your mind

and you believe you are broken

thoughts crumble, left unspoken

despair most retched rots the heart

tears drying up before the rain starts

used and abandoned you mumble your sins

utter without as you bleed within

and you begin to wither

heart frozen begins to melt

aged by remorse of weakened mind

hands pull at you lost in the dark with no glimmer to find

drunk on the shame of the condemned

stumbling forth blackened with sin

constitution deteriorates as you reach the end

and you once again find yourself left to ashes here in the wind
