Shadows of a lifetime hung in ghastly array as I neglect the very warning of my darkened solitude
Mesmerized by the frivolous enchantment of my imagination, my heart was a time bomb waiting for orders to self execute
Need I say at this time my only companion was my bitter soul, reminding me that I was alive and my pain continued?
For days turned to weeks and yet I remained perplexed and utterly bewildered of how it came to be, that I was a destitute
I wasn’t locked behind bars or held with chains but my mind was my greatest shackle
Love was my jailer ’cause feelings betrayed me and my fight is within like a pitched battle
My lamentation is not for an escape but rather a swift demise of my soul from my walking carcass
