I whisper
'leave me alone'

I tell them
'please stop'

I run
but they catch up

I plead,
'I have nothing'

laid out in perfect detail.

hide from the monsters.
plan your next moves.

a new chance to find meaning
and experience happiness.

cover me in darkness
and feed my despair.

and amplifies the longing.

lead me away
to beautiful places
and unfulfilled dreams.

you are the gateway
for my soul.
