The black pit sits low in the base of your gut

Getting darker every day

There’s nowhere to turn, nowhere to run

Nothing anyone can say



Emotions build they spiral through

They twist and turn inside

They cut your inner core to shreds

There’s nowhere you can hide




The silver lining on every cloud

Has it ever been there

Has it existed, has it been lost

Does anybody care



Your heart sits heavy in your chest

Like a jagged river rock

A metal chain wraps tightly round

With no key for this lock



You look without seeing, you hear without sound

Words mean nothing at all

Feelings are stagnant, emotions not felt

The bricks are up in the wall



Darkness fades you look up to the sky

Gray clouds are overhead

You close your eyes willing the peace

And ignore the feelings you dread
