Surrounded by people, yet I feel alone, I’m trapped within a Solitary Zone.
A world which I have made, of
Chaos, hate which has overtaken every bit of Happiness, a sense
Which I can’t escape. The Laughter, and my smile, never, ever seems
To last due to the fact that I’m haunted by memories of my past.
Running the distance with no place to go. This, my life, like some
Type of Broadway show. I scream for help. . Can’t anyone Hear?
Shadows of my past continue to appear. The only release that
Comes at last, A Book To Read: my escape from my past.
