No matter what direction I walk,
The road I'm on never ends.
The sky is always cloudy,
And the sun is never present.

My nights are restless and elongated,
Each smile becomes harder to fake.
The vigor I possessed has abandoned me,
Replaced with an ever-growing atrophy.

I yearn for the touch of a woman,
That no longer exists.
I dream during the day,
Just to find myself in her arms again.

The demons within have bested me,
The strength of my will has failed.
People and places flash around me,
Leaving me behind in their wake.

Alcohol and other poisons have no effect on me,
They no longer pry me away from this.
I love my life locked in a haze,
Trying to forget myself.

I need your help to get out,
I need your aid to survive.
I need a meaningful smile,
A genuine expression of love,
To save me from myself.
