I sit here in this emptiness

filled with vacant dreams

Lost here in this loneliness

drowned out by screams.

If my mind goes wondering

it only makes me sad.

I'd lose so many things

the best I've ever had.

So I'm frozen to this spot

where nowhere is the real.

How can I stop stumbling

when I'm afraid to feel.

The pains they shoot again

slowly grinding me down.

I cry out in hopes I'm heard.

but no one is around.

So I slowly vanish

or really so it seems.

And to finally wake up

to find I'm just a dream.

Purple shades of evening

covers all my lawn.

I look for the answer

I will lose before I’m gone.

The scream that goes on endlessly

drowning all my thoughts and deeds.

The nightmare just hangs around

empting me of sleep I need.

I cannot find the purpose
