This is actually a poem that I wrote and published separately on Protagonize but it counts as part of the collection, though it delves into something a little more deep than what I'm writing about. It's up to you to analyze the meaning but this was written from hard and raw emotion. My emotion. And that's what makes it so...
Well, see for yourself:
Seams of a mask that split apart
No longer can I hide within my heart
Residing in the shadows of a broken world
Living in the creation of my personal hell
To unearth my solution
I search in vain and find a delusion
Of my ultimate faith and beliefs
Forming a hole inside of me
and cry out
In hopes of finding a light
But what is hope really
When I've already died inside.
Lead me out
Help me through
This puddle of fears
I wish to throw
To attain true beauty
Once and for all.
