Into the darkness I go, 

It's okay they’ll never know. 

The darkness is my only friend, 

And the voice in my head knows how this will end. 

The silence got too loud, 

Now I am lost in a crowd. 

I ran until I couldn’t anymore, 

What was all of this for? 

My reasons to survive are also the reason I cry, 

All the while I am screaming why? 

Why do I feel this way? 

And why did you make me stay? 

Why can’t you answer the things that I say? 

And why is my mind fucked up this way? 

Hear me out I am staring to go crazy, 

Am I where I am meant to be? 

Are you disappointed in who I have become? 

Or have the demons won?
