I've tried

but I can't describe

the way I feel -

the pain inside.

It's nothing like

I've felt before

so lost,

so insecure.

There's nothing left

this river is dry

I only watch

life pass me by.

Everything seems so surreal

nothing left to feel...

Nothing but sadness

nothing but death

mind showing madness

happy thoughts have left.

I'm not alone

there are people here,

yet I can't escape

this fear.

I'm still around

but my mind has gone.

Knights, bishops, and queen - they corner; surround

unlucky for me - I'm just a pawn.
