From the pavement where my mind walks Stretches a painful vista of devastation My life's loneliness, heartache's wrecks I am followed by a shadow of ruins.
There is no sound of inner feelings Only the stillness of my emotions catacombs My footsteps toward reality fall dull Silenced on a deserted sidewalk.
A funeral procession of inner inhibitions Seem interminable, they stretch for miles My unheard screams echo against dead walls I have fallen; I only see a black and blue horizon.
I somehow get to my knees, trying to see the light Only, in a sadden melancholy way, am re-shuttered Life's constant haunting is in constant pursuit On and on, hour after hour, its task is to cover my retreat.
Day to day, their daunting lines are alternately forming Fighting, regrouping, making for one continuous battle My mind asks me, 'Why are you running? ' And I answer, 'I'm running because there's no where to hide! '
Still running, as-if incapable of fatigue From this somewhat peculiarly viewed behavior I, at last, discover that my soul is wasting away The last bits of my life are finally exhausted.
I am relieved, no more necessity to guard my sanity What's left of me moves aimlessly from point A to point A Nothing is no longer needed for life to render its triumph No peace will ever be made with this infamous invader.
