I will die faceless,
Placed in a masked grave.
Concealed by top layers,
Never to be seen.

Lonely, pensive thoughts weigh down
Constricted chest, weakened soul.
Still a smile forms upon my lips,
Mutilating self identity.

Gawk into murky eyes,
Watch my world fall apart.
Surrounded by much sin,
Keeping conflicts close within.

My end will come silently,
For no one knows my pain.
Intense, subdued screams,
Lost to whispering winds.

Cries and tears subside,
As heavy lid closes.
Chains and bolts,
Will never show my hardware,
As I submit to an unmarked grave.
