This feeling I have that drags my spirit And I indulge in its lowly zest out of habit My feet they move in a trudge like manner Shoulders hunched inwards non receptive to splendour.
How heavy it is in my heart I weep For a life been dealt in a single, swift sweep Cards that has been dealt from aeons past Oaths recited loudly so that they would last.
Amidst the crowd of mask-faced happiness Unconvinced, I slipped past unfound lest I be careless. Discomforted in what on this path may lie Discontented as such that my heart whines a cry.
Rigidity of routine when sensibility took over Bruised bad and battered well my heart tumbled after It felt like it's the end of my dream laden days Reality sinks in, picks on my heart and there it stays.
I don't want to leave my coveted dreamscape I don't want to destroy my only means of escape On the ***** of fantasy, forever I want to stay But it's crumbling away alarmingly like sun beaten clay.
I deceive my heart into thinking that there's still hope Truth is I may have come to the end of the rope Heart wants to hear a faint whisper of reassurance Mind chides heart, it judgingly delivers it's sentence.
My cries cannot be heard, a wail of futile pleas Banging on locked doors for which I don't have the keys So weak this spirit for it has thus been broken Morsel by morsel, this hapless soul is being eaten.
This burden I'm carrying seem never to have lightened It is the dark of this period I wish to have brightened Someone, anyone help...please show me a way In this god forsaken pit I do not wish to stay.
However there exists yet a slim little chance Key to courage is somewhere if I could afford a glance Chances are that I may never even find it I'll be trapped in a hole in which I can never truly fit.
