I Hide From You

Hell -

I repress,
I ignore;
I inevitably forget.
My shattered façade
I’m not dead yet.
The lies that I tell,
The smiles that I fake;
My hell is this earth
And every breath that I take.


Shredded -

Every day a living nightmare,
Faceless monsters invade my dreams.
They rip me apart;
They get off on my screams.
My heart was in shreds to begin with.

I’ll sleep when I’m dead -

Translucent leaves burn.
Shatter the darkness.
Light as bright as a padded cell ballroom.
The darkness devours,
The light dissipates.
