Those Days
Author: Lynn


i try not to remember those days,
the ones of pain and crying
those hollow memories i keep buried,
the ones where my hate keeps relying

i welcomed the very thought,
the very thought of breaking my chains
to finally get away,
to break away from all the blame

stress eating away from me,
ripping my very soul
making me what i am now,
empty and out of control

the loathing i felt then,
has seemed to follow me here
never losing sight of it's target
keeping me in constant fear

the punishment i took then,
has made me stronger now
letting me see the reality of it all
but never again will i bow

feeling and emotion have left me,
i'm dark and empty inside
no one here to comfort me,
becoming a stranger to my mind

i'll have to find a way,
make my own path
find the meaning of it all,
a way to release my wrath
