It's So Lonely Here
Its all very dark here,
In my ruptured mind
Nobody ever visits me,
No, they cannot afford to be kind.
People heard of what happened,
They know the laws of physics.
Even though I wasn't in the wrong,
I'm just another set of statistics.
I don't know what time it is,
Whether its night or day.
How could I know such valuable information,
If no one ever takes the time to say.
I think they think I'm brain-dead,
Though I'm not quite sure.
Maybe they expect me never to see again,
But surely that could be cured.
I'm lying here in silence,
Am I even lying down?
Why can't I hear anything,
In miserable quietness I might as well drown.
Since the night of the car crash,
I've never been the same.
Instantly I lost all feeling,
Really it was a shame.
Not so long after that,
I lost all traces of sight.
Firstly they told me it was just temporary,
But now I can't even call it a fight.
The last place I remember,
Was the hospital bed where I lay.
But that's only a memory now,
How long it has been I cannot say.
People stopped talking to me after that,
They didn't seem to have the time.
I think they moved me to another room,
Because now I can't even hear the window chimes.
It's so very lonely here,
All in my quiet, little mind.
Oh, all the things I would do,
Just to have my life rewind.
What's happening to me now?
I'm having trouble breathing.
Why are they doing this?
On me they've given up helping.
I feel no pain,
I hear not a thing.
But wasn't there a heartbeat,
That of which was comforting.
Now the heart beats stop coming,
My ruptured mind overwhelmed.
This feeling of drunkenness,
Just minus the alcohol.
Don't they love me?
My parents just let this happen?
How could they have just stopped visiting,
And let all this hidden madness sadden.
I see a white light now,
Could it possibly be?
Maybe it is,
But we'll just have to wait and see.
