Hostage

I feel so lonely, so incomplete

weighed down by the heaviest concrete

my heart is broken into a million pieces

what hurts the most is what releases

put down, tied down, dragged to the lowest low

so hopeless, doubting everything I know

facts become questions, feelings don't exist

my worries and fears are evident on my wrist

eyes cast down, no words to be spoken

body & soul as one, rejected and broken

wondering if and silently asking why

unending sorrow and wishing to die

the blackness clings to everything in sight

depression is keeping me hostage in a starless night
