Alone

This darkened world in which I live,

It's taken everything from me.

This world has stolen all I give,

And left nothing more for me to be.

I'm just a shell and nothing more,

My soul has long been dead.

I just don't care now what's in store,

There's nothing left to dread.

I walk this endless road of naught,

Watching those who cannot see.

Those who wander without thought,

Of the darkness deep inside of me.

I'd let the beast escape my heart,

Make all those who hurt me pay.

But then I would lose a part,

Of what keeps the beast at bay.

So I will walk and try to see,

What the darkness does not own.

And see if this world could ever be,

Somewhere I'm not alone.
