Never thought that darkness could be blinding,
Or that its chains could be so damn binding!
Never imagined I could feel this way once more,
Another shattered window & one more broken door.
I try to convince myself that I’m asleep,
Submerged in a nightmare ever so deep.
I tell myself that I am majorly inebriated,
My hallucinations are flowing unabated!
But it is all real and I feel its tow,
Hands tied while I watch my pain grow.
Tears as cheap as sand,
An empty shivering hand,
And another smile deprived day…
