#1
My eyes are open, but
I cannot see the way ahead
I feel I'm blind
Trapped in my life
The past behind an open book
The future filling me with dread

A black hole opens up
before me, sucking me inside
Paralysed
Trapped in my life
I hide behind my pain, contrite,
My wants and hopes denied

A knock on the door
A voice in the night
In darkness I hide
I'm not here I'm not here

I hide myself inside me
Wishing all the world aside
Detached from life
Trapped in my head
My mind a swirling vortex, chaos
Voices noise, colours collide

I lock the world outside me
Pushing all the pain away
Floating, drifting
What is life?
The darkness folds around me
Voices fade, colours grey

A knock on the door
A voice in the night
The darkness enshrouds
I'm not here I'm not here


Edit: Any comments welcome - its a first attempt so I'm not going to be offended if you say it sucks
