Tears of blood
cascade like a flood
fall down my face
as if in a race
I gasp for air
blinded by despair
of lonely pain
drowning me in rain
oh I long to see
the beauty in me
my heart my soul
cry out to be whole
mortal wounds
like black balloons
resembe sins
at the mercy of the winds
buffeted about
I yearn to shout
am in so much pain
please someone unlock the chain.

From where did it come?
my life is the sum
of dark despair
and blackness where
my only friend
is loneliness
I cannot redress
am damaged beyond repair
so why is it so
that the god not there
does not care?
