I’ve nothing to look to for hope

All is lost, all is darkness
Forever burning, forever freezing
With no one to hear my screaming

Because no one’s listening
They watch in silence
Pretending I’m not being buried alive

They know what’s happening
And that they can help
But they fear the darkness that surrounds me
They know they just have to reach out
To rescue me from the bottomless pit

If I’m ever rescued-
If there’s any of myself left-
I will hate them

And they will wonder why

Very powerful and deep. I've been there. This poem has some hidden meaning, which makes it even stronger. Great job!
