A Poem

I have drifted away again

And choose to roam

Throughout the deserts of my mind

Not my own

Only you can save me from this

Nightmare I call life

A dream within a dream

As I deny reality

And live within the mirrors of time

Distorted as intended

As you try to control me with reality

As you mould and break me down

Giving birth to my inner rage

I lay broken

With jagged glass

That cuts into my eyes

You see me cry

Tears of blood

Tears of regret

Tears of death

Please discard me

I beg of you

Why will you not listen

Really listen

To the poetry

Within my eyes

And see the hurt

Feel the desires

Of my empty heart

Instead of chasing

Me relentlessly

Just let me go

Please set me free
