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
