Darkness Surrounds (Living a Lie - Part Two)
Darkness surrounds me, a dreary, cold, place with no escape.
Feeling lost, alone and confused I'm sucked deep into my own mind.
A place I soon became comfortable in, a place where I can hide.
The darkness becomes my respite, my shelter.
A buffer from the devastation of my own broken dreams.
Trapped in my own mind I search in circles for
Surviving but not living, my heart bleeding and broken from my loss.
Torn up by guilt, thoughts of being punished for some perceived fault.
Confusion and turmoil become my only companions.
I need to start living again they tell me - but could I?
Do I have the strength to crawl my way out of my own mind?
Then again, do I really want to?
If I do escape the void will I still be me and if not, can I accept the person I've become?
Follow my journey in part two of my Living A Lie Series.
