Author: Lynn


this prison no longer holds me,
it's bars are withered away
for a short time i roam freely,
but unable to go astray

i walk that tunnel of lights,
as many times i have before
lurking the shadows of nights,
breathing is my only chore

re-emerging in a new shell,
as the seizures make me shake
escaping the clutches that bind me,
another breath being forced to take

the years of solitude and torture,
have taught me how not to die
but i would welcome the opportunity,
if the consequences were not so high

the numbness inside me,
keeps the pain at bay
not enough for me to go,
but enough for me to stay

all is gone but the horror,
my mind and sanity are shattered
my existance a burden unto me,
my ashes begging to be scattered

this host can no longer contain me,
it's chest my must divide
squeezing through the portal,
from the fires i can no longer hide

the sweet kiss of the flame,
my agony has finally ceased
i've come home to my master,
at last i have found peace

this reincarnation is killing me
i am dead on the inside
