Within the confines of your own mind
Unable to escape
The prison cell it has become

"Please, don't leave me!"

None can hear
These cries for help
And none are registered
For you wear a mask
Of flesh

Comes a whisper
"You are hopeless..."

You can't take back
What is in the past

I'd love to leave it all behind
But I can't let it go
Lie to myself
How could I?

Forever afraid
Of being loved

Put the bottle down
I tell myself
Again and again
For the 100th time
It seems...

I do anything
Just to feel

I look the same
But I'm not fine
No matter what I told you
I am;
Lost and defeated

I am merciless
To myself
To all else

I am just another casualty

When they least expect it
It will strike
Taking a hit
Shooting me down

This is me;
The monster
Right before your eyes

What do you think of me now?
