Drops of blood fall from the shadow that is my sky
The tounges of flames leap out to burn flesh that no longer has feeling
Each breath hurts
My mind is rock, my heart is stone
Where there once was my soul there is a black empty void, dark and deep
Eaten out by worms, hungry for corrupt humanity
They ate their fill
Poison are the tears I cry, from eyes that see the cage in which I exist
And acid is the pain that tears away at what is left of me, what knows there is no escape
Tormented by fear and regret, my ball and chain that I cannot shake
Pain has become my shadow
I move and yet I go nowhere
There is nothing else
The only world I know is the world I am in
Voices in my head dance to a song of anger and hate, torturing me with memories of what could have been
Bathing in the salty sweat of my own doing, tasting the cruelty and unfairness of it all on my tounge
Dangling in front of me is a glimmer of hope, a light in the eternal darkness
I reach with hands that will never make it
Sinking to my knees on the broken glass which is the ground I walk upon,
I scream a scream that will be heard by no one
only left to resound among other cries and pleas for mercy,
a mercy that is as distant as the consuming flames are near
I know now that this hell,
this hell that is all mine,
is the only fate worse than death

Emmy,
Take an asprin and call me in the morning.
Powerful paint it almost made me faint.
