{oasis}

I'm standing here
Just my shattered soul and I
In a purely evil world
It didn't use to be like this
Before the world was broken

The sun used to shine without the intent of punishment
And the stars were so clear
When night wasn't a nightmare
And daydreaming wasn't needed
To survive

In those times
My heart didn't condemn me 
For feeling happy
My mind didn't taunt me
For every clumsy action I execute

The guilt that follows 
Slinking against the walls of my mind
Into my sleep to torment me
And my legs 
Were unscarred

Is there hope that I could return to
That childhood oasis
Is there hope
that I can live
In this purely evil world

The End
