~*Alone*~

 

By: Kearin Maxwell

 

Just when you feel you're safe...
Happiness runs for the door.
Those glass walls and mirrors are closing again.
I'm all alone.
Time to don my Joker's mask...
And try to fool everyone with a cheerful smile.
To make them think there's nothing wrong...
But there is.
I'm all alone.
These glass walls and mirrors are closing...
Faster, and tighter...
And I can't escape.
I'm all alone.
Darkness is starting to come...
Shadows that surround...
That makes it seem too quiet...
Everlasting silence.
I'm all alone
The depression is getting to me...
And like the glass walls and mirrors that surround me...
There's no escape.
And now the silence is too great...
I'm all alone
I feel the cold and bitter darkness...
It's chilling me through my bones...
Eating my soul... slowly...
I'm all alone
I can't call out for help...
My friends can't help me...
My Joker's mask is in place and won't let them, or me...
So I smile and laugh, but now it's cold and bitter, like the darkness that surrounds me.
I'm all alone.
The glass walls and mirrors have closed.
And I'm here... alone... for all of eternity.
In the dreadful silence...
Which is eating me... killing my soul...
These walls which imprison me... will never shatter...
I'm all alone.

~*The End*~

I love this poem... I wrote it when I was depressed and it just resulted in the end coming out like my favorite pilot. Feedback Welcome!!!
