Disappear into the shadows

castaway in the darkness

just as all the other creatures

who don't deserve to see the day


the pain and sorrow spreading

swallowing your hope at a new sun

as you stride off into the moonlight

leaving the agony behind


screams go unheard through the madness

muffled in insanity and apologies

that do not deserve to be forgiven

but remain covered and unforgotten


the pain remains forever
