"I can be surrounded by a sea of people and still feel all alone." - Tennyson

My life seems like a bad dream
I'm so terrified I just want to scream

I'm lying here paralyzed by my thoughts
I'm helpless while my minds rots

I can't wake up, I can't get away
The dark shadows force me to stay

As it pulls me under
The length of my life is what I wonder

he tells me I' worthless and nothing to no one
Because he knows all I want is to be something to someone

I try to fight my way through
But I soon give into the shadows and find they're you

I beg for you to have mercy on me
I plead with you to put me out of my misery

You laugh at my broken hope
And I wish you would just grab a rope

You ignore me as I'm swallowed by despair
It's as if I'm in a clenching snare

It gets tighter and tighter
Willing me to be a fighter

But I give up, now and forever
I can no longer keep myself together
