“Help! The only words I repeat, yet no one hears.

Except you 

I try to scream, but I’m muffled

I say all the wrong things,

Do all the wrong actions

I feel a dark hole sucking all the happiness that was ever truly there

I try to run and hide, 

But I can’t escape what I’ve become

The thing I fear most

I’ve become hated and feared by the only thing I thought I could trust

But they resent me the most

They hate the way I look



I can run all I want, but I cannot hide, 


I need to get to you!

Reach out your hand; I can help!

Don’t give up!

She’s gone,

It’s too late
