This pain in me, it swallows me whole.
From the inside to out, something I can’t control.

I am all alone, where ever I am.
Who am I? A shell of a man!

Broken to pieces, I live day after day.
Broken inside, in each and every way.

Cast out to the side, no one at my side.
I feel so trapped inside myself, have I already died?

For the pain in me, has crept deep inside.
From this pain in my heart, there is nowhere to hide.

Eyes are the window to the soul, what do I see.
Empty inside, like there is nothing inside me.

For years I lived with nothing but joy.
In a blink of an eye, I am just a poor boy.

All the dreams I had, has started to come apart.
It’s all been devoured, by this pain in my heart.

I've been here before, this isn't the first.
Going through this again, I feel like I’m cursed.

What is left in me, except the feeling of pain?
This feeling inside, telling me it will happen again!

Thank you Night.
Dark times found me, but I will not let that stand in the way of writing.
