The world that I live in is nothing too great
I honestly hate living in this unconscionable state
Of mind where nothing seems to goes right
Where the flicker of hope goes out like a light
I feel like reality is slipping away from me
And I can no longer reach the door I must see
So I reside myself to my darkened thoughts
And remind myself that I don't need to be taught

I sit in a corner in my brain
Trying so hard to keep myself sane
From the chaos that surrounds me so
Ignoring the people that seem to know
More about life than they let on to
Too bad nobody believes it's true
I cover my ears to block out the lies
I can't stand the sight, so I cover my eyes
I envelope myself in the blacked room
Hoping that darkness will take me soon
In my world, stars do not shine
And little babies don't dare to whine
The birds here do not whistle or sing
And marriage is not focused on one puny ring
Love is nonexistent, as it always has been
And the planet seemed to make peace again
There also seems to be no sun
It feels like the apocalypse has only begun
It's hard to make a new creation
But that is the result of my imagination
When silence tries to eat me alive
I remind myself to never let it drive
Me to the point of horror insanity
But to make sure and be aware of the profanity
That echos in my screwed up mind
It's the reason why I should be kind
So when the darkness creeps around me
I'm neutral and wait, letting it free
I don't allow it to take over my being
The colours in black are surely worth seeing

My vision blinks clear as I snap back to reality
The weight on my chest being pushed by gravity
Think what you may, but I am not crazy
Although my mind seems unusually hazy
But now that I'm awake to the daylight once more
I have finally managed to open the door

Just a random poem I thought up in a half hour's time.
It kinda' has a story behind it, although it's really nothing special. When you get that feeling that you're enclosed from the rest of the world, finding nothing better to do than talk to yourself or reside in your own thoughts, have you ever wondered if you were slowly going insane? The fear of the insanity leads to denial, which is something I was trying to create here, so I hope it worked out ...
If not, oh well. I still had fun with this. :dance:
