In This Prison

I lay in a sunken pit of confusion and despair.
Joyful times and happy memories dance in the light.
The only light in that hole is the glow that eminates from those blissful recollections.
And it’s a light that blinds.
Tortures my blood-shot eyes.
My heart.
That is hooked.
And strung up.
And dripping black blood.
Hollow blood.

I know the face of my keeper.
I have touched it.
Kissed it.
Smiled upon it.
Loved it.
NO!
Adored it.

And then it dissolved.
Into this.
Kind of hellish ache.
That haunts me.
Terrifys me.
Kills me.
Slowly.

It is not chains that bind me to this emptiness.
It’s sorrow.
The thirst is quenched by the tears that drown me.
The hunger by the lies i eat.
The lies that assure those around me and poison me internally.
The company is filed by the girl everyone sees me as.

Smiling.
Light-hearted.
_Silly. _
Happy.

Haha. Oh, how fiendishly jealous i am of that girl
Oh, how bitter is the anger on my tounge.
How pitiful is the yerning i feel towards that illusive joy.
How pitiful!

There are no rats here.
No rowdy inmates.

Just me.
Just me.
Alone.
In this blackness.
Alone.
In this prison.
