Circle of Sorrow

This is the road
I never wanted to travel
with nowhere to go
locked inside my emptiness

I see light shining
through holes in my cell
I feel rain on my metal skin
There's a few rivulets of beauty
here and there
but mostly
I'm sad

Black waves of pain
keep washing through me
and won't stop
It's not getting easier
I'm just becoming more numb
Pretending not to care
while something inside me dies
being strong
even while I cry
sitting here alone
questioning why I'm alive
