this place…

These four walls hold me tight
they suffocate me until I’m nothing more
than the ashes I once was
the world I thought I knew is torn

I’m awake but am I alive?
I must be because the anger I feel
swims through my veins
am I breathing because I’m real?

I’m screaming in my mind
so I don’t disturb anybody
my pain could never inconvenience you
I will silently die inside

This is where I reside
when nobody is around
all the world lives on so carelessly
but I don’t make a sound

Unable to cope
reality breaks through these walls
the ashes everyone once saw
come away with me as I fall

Down in my solitude
you know I’m dying inside
but everything about this place
just doesn’t feel right

What were my final words?
Will anybody really remember me?
I was only a shadow in the dark
and you were all too blind to really see
