Pieces of me
Scattered,
And broken.

My heart is
Scattered,
And broken.

My mind is my only
Comfort
In this
Forsaken land.

My thoughts
Are crowded,
Unreliable.

Feelings no longer
Hold a meaning.

Nothing can save me,
Don’t bother fighting.

Treat me well
You know
I deserve it.

All the years,
All the lies.

Pull yourself
From the ashes.

You know you
Owe it to me.

Fear can crawl
Through the ruins,
I hope you can
Outrun it.

Shadows fleeting,
Drop your gaze,
Like concrete,
Seeping
Through the cracks.
They might find you,
Here alone
In this awful place.

Get up,
They’re going to
Find you.

Don’t be afraid,
You have to go.
Leave,
I don’t want you here,
Leave me alone,
You had your chance.

Run away,
Before they find you.

Leave me alone,
Like so many
Times before.

You better go,
They’re going to

Get you.

Hurry now,
Before they find you.

They’re going to
Get you.
