Hidden Amongst the Shadows

Fading in to the background,

Another lost soul,

With blank eyes -

An empty heart.

Another broken down, rusted machine

I wish you were here

So close, no matter how far.

Stuck in this cramped, polluted wasteland.

Where are you?

Searching, looking

Melt the ice in my heart.

Everyday, the same monotonous task,

Is it even worth it?

A waste of energy,

Dragging myself through the day,

Forcing back the tears –

All they value is money.

Fading in to the background

To shed my tears

Hidden amongst the shadows –

Still alone.
