Alone

I’m scared of my own shadow.
I’m terrified of the dark.
I’m lost in my own nightmare I can never escape.
Darkness overcomes me.
Fear eats me alive.
All I needed was you by my side.
But you went away.
You disappeared.
You said you couldn’t be here.
Was it because who I was becoming?
Or who I wasn’t?
You said someday you’d come back.
You said you’d take the pain away.
You said everything would be okay.
But I’m still here, trapped.
Scared.
Broken.
I’m still here dead.
Words unspoken.
My eyes shed a tear that seems to go on forever.
My mind seems to wonder..
If the agony will end.
If you’ll ever come and save me.
Because I’m scared of my own shadow.
I’m terrified of the dark.
I’m lost in my own nightmare..
I can never escape
Not until you come and save me again.
