I feel so numb,

Like a monolith of stone.

No pain to come,

No ballad of love to hone.

I feel the rain,

Eroding away my skin.

This is it then,

It's how I pay for my sin.

I see the sun,

But its warmth can't reach my heart.

I feel undone,

Like my world's falling apart.

I greet the night,

Her soothing touch a mercy.

Tired of this fight,

I let sweet sleep shelter me.

When I awake,

I find nothing has changed yet.

Too much to take,

Will I be freed from this fate?
