In the Dark

*Warning : Could be slightly intense*

The guilt is relentless
Though I know not my sin
Existing itself feels wrong
Uncomfortable in my own skin

I thought that I was meant to live in the light
But I cloak myself with shadows instead
And glimpses and echoes from the days past
Swirl destructively in my head

Hold me or I’ll self destruct
But stay away or you’ll sink with me
My touch may forever scar your soul
My presence may burn you brutally

It’s not my intention to inflict these scars
They are slashed as I beat against these bars
And strange as it may seem to be
All I’m trying to be is me.
