Guilt weighs me down, for I am weak

It finds and destroys every good feeling

Until there are no more left for it to seek

I am surrounded by darkness, I am nothing

Regret taunts me

Remorse haunts me

She is my only remaining thought

Still begging for me to come and play

Though She knows that I will not

I yell, She laughs and skips away

Collie taunts me

Linnie haunts me

Her image commands my nightmare

She is pointing at the window

Her accusing eyes are filled with terror

I ignore Her. I did not know

Blue Eyes taunt me

Brown Eyes haunt me

They know it was all my fault

That they were unfairly kidnapped

And now, forever in Hell I will rot

Because I disregarded our verbal contract

Tears taunt me

Fears haunt me

Big sister tries to save the little one

But I should never have turned away

Now Blue Eyes and Brown Eyes are gone

My butterflies were taken; they never had a say

Death taunts me

Suicide haunts me

Mother, I sincerely apologize

Thank you for my last goodnight kiss

I'm sorry it has to end in my demise

But I cannot live with this broken promise

Shadows surround me

Hell has found me
