Feeling all alone desparate cries from the soul.


It seems as I've been here before
 on the edge of sanity back and forth I rock
teetering on the illusions displayed before me
 clear as the day peering into the dead of night
keeping a steady pace yet still trailing behind
 the race of life my loaded Knapp sack
 is heavy bearing the facets of beggar life?
 all signs lead me astray hinting to end life or stay
 you can't see me just a shell of what I used to be
behind shimmering eyes
 hidden darkness of innocence long gone
 shattered dreams pierced the night
 of screams now here I stand
 carrying the load unbefitting of any man
 whispers drawing near again
outraging at unresolved
hurt cries and pleas for relief
unforgotten traumatic
scenes prance into view unrelenting
 interrupting the minstrel show replaying schemes
 fast forward pause rewind go slow
erase my mind weeps the innocence inside
 searching the corners under small rocks to hide
 back and forth again I teeter
still invisible to your naked eye
your gaze lingers past me
 how can you not see the real me
 you carried inside your womb
 yet only now you see my tomb
just a shell of what I used to be
 emotions bleeding havoc inside my brain
 mentally grinding me insane
please save this shell of me
reignite my light its fading drifting
 surely if you look deeper and see
the long lost imminence and save me
