Zero Two - The Capsule
Author: 15


To hide tonight,
To sleep till dawn.
Living in a dream,
Forever on.

I love this prison,
But hate myself.
I hate this prison,
But spend my wealth.

"Come to me now",
The capsule pleads.
"I will ease you,
Confide in me."

Can't face myself,
Or family.
I wish this pain,
Would let me be.

No need to run,
Just crawl inside.
Can't fight my fear,
I'd rather die.

"Come to me now",
My best friend pleads.
"I will ease you,
Confide in me."

A tragic love,
You can't behold.
A tragic tale,
Will now unfold.

Spilling the truth,
Of who I am.
Now you all know,
I'm forever damned.

"Come to me now",
My destiny calls.
"I will free you,
Surrender it all."

Its taken all that I had,
To get this far.
Now nothing left in this world,
Could heal these scars.

So enveloped,
In this world,
I must get out,
Though it sounds absurd.

Somewhere to hide,
From my life,
I must go now,
In this cell I lie.

Forever riddled,
By all those things.
Things can't be undone,
Things can't be changed.

------- Author's Notes -------

This is called "The Capsule".
My sister is addicted to pills.
