    Shadows of Oblivion


    An explosion inside brings out all that I had to hide
    The anger, the sadness, my secret darker side
    My life is a train-wreck; it’s an internal battlefield
    Through the carnage, they’re coming at me from all sides to yield
    They can’t look away, for they’re enthralled by what they see
    And so no one rushes in, no one tries to save myself from me
    Everyone bears witness to my ungraceful and ungainly glide
    Into oblivion, a place where happiness has long died.

    I swim to the shores to where the darkness basks its skin
    Balk at the sight of my reflection on the unearthly tinge
    Try to stand up tall, resolve to claw my way up and out
    All while the sprites and faeries dance about and shout
    Of how it will never measure up, my expectations
    So I may as well surrender to my inclinations
    That this is the best, the greatest it will ever get to be
    And I should just allow my spirit to be set free.

    Disheartened, I slink away from the shores and begin to tread
    Back into the blackest of oceans, the shadows of the dead
    I strain my ears, hoping to hear the faintest sound of hope calling
    All the while realising I’m sinking further, falling and falling
    Into the darkness, the shadows of oblivion
    To rest along side the other women and men
    Who graced this earth for one reason or another
    But left it too, instead to come here and eternally suffer.
