Tied & dangling by a thin strand of fate,
Around me, the world is at a standstill,
A deafening silence all around,
Hours roll by,
I’m still lonely and cold,
Restless and uncomfortable,
A daily plight I’m all too familiar with,
Hidden from everyone else.
Knowing it will always be this way,
Hope seems bleak, it only drifts further away,
Abandoned and forgotten,
Lost in my own thoughts,
Enslaved by my own cruel mind,
Quiet desperation, enduring in silence,
Engulfed by this perpetual darkness, leave me be.
