Ballad of the Broken

His eyes are a black abyss,

Watching for danger.

He's terrified, out of control,

He's angry, bitter.

Loneliness is his closest friend,

It's all he ever knew.

" When will I be saved from this?"

He thinks, his heart heavy.

Safety is an illusion,

Safety is a lie.

Drowning in his own choices,

Cutting himself down.

Breaking the web of passion

He could never feel.

Death as welcoming as sleep,

Sleep far more painful.

He's terribly alone,

Worse, he believes it.
