This is my barbed wire tragedy,
these concrete walls were built for me.
Alone and dark,
my cast-iron heart
has never felt so free.

This is the graveyard of my eyes,
things fall apart, although we try.
This place is dead
inside my head,
but somehow I can't cry.

This is my epitaph come true ,
I hid, and stayed away from you.
I built myself
as someone else,
and I just wish you knew.

Wow is one word to describe this poem. Very moody and Gothic in nature...
Perhaps even a little cryptic in its' message...

You float untethered in this forlornity. Your detached regret is heartwrenching. Very emotive and understated.
