Dark Minds


There is no peace

There is no joy

Only darkness

The blood stains the walls

There is no longer a heart that beats

Simply a hollow cave

One can't find a place of solitude

Or even a meal 

Saith an empty vessel with only a small morsel


Can't anything in the world just be?

I want to serve a purpose but can't live purposely 

My soul cries

My heart aches 

And my body is in pain

because the state of my mind is in disarray 

that not man can save me this time
