Asleep while awake my body dreams of pain and abuse.

Intolerable cruelty leaves scars of black rotting Hell.

Imbibed with hate my soul drinks my wounds.

Filled with fear I remain captive to my primitive self.

Walking through the darkness of my thoughts I yearn to scream.

Another re-enactment of the cycle ensues.

Stop, stop, stop! I die each day.

Youth long gone, wisdom not here.

Lift this cloak of secrecy and reveal your lies.

I'm tired of fighting; I'm fresh out of gas.

Refute the tears because they're meaningless.

Only love will save me now.

An odd duck who likes even numbers.
