The pain engulfs me
Deeper and deeper I fall
This trance becomes a way of life
I can lie without blinking an eye
And I smile, yet inside I am dying
Why let on I am fading away?
I once was vibrant…full of life
Now black and white, I sit, and try to make red
Though no color could mask how helpless I feel, but if I
I’m fading away.
