So many things turned out as a lie
I feel like I should die
All has turned black
my life has turned out in a whack
I can’t sleep
because the feeling is so deep
it has engraved on my poor soul
and now my heart is burning in coal
the fire, still lit
how could I be knit?
My hope is shattered,
and me, I’m battered.
Life, now, seems unattainable
and it’s so unexplainable.
How it turned out like this?
How could it end in this abyss?
Helpless and lost
I’ll have to pay the cost
of nothing
and accepting
all darkness.

I can truly connect with this poem, I can understand what you mean by "All has turned black my life has turned out in a whack" because sometimes I feel that way, and I just wonder, why me?

Favorite Quote:
Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

i knew how you felt i just hope you find your way out
