A lost dark corner in a lost dark mind,
Holding lost dark secrets that for years I've spurned.
Do I really want these burdens to be mine?
Will I flinch away, or even see I'm being burned?
While others have their stories
Constant pain is my life's summary.
Times I thought "It'll end soon, surely"
Stain my already scarlet memories.
Into how many pieces can I be torn?
Will life ever need my consent?
What words now describe my eyes? Forlorn?
Black smog trapped without a vent?
I open those eyes to see my fingers
Opening my jagged history
Will I pull away or simply linger
On my flaming cold misery?
