Whisper

A whisper in sorrow

A scream to the deaf

A flash to the blind

You have nothing left

Your pockets are empty

Your life on the floor

The future is shattered

Can’t take anymore

Your friends are against you

Your family’s a joke

Each breath is a nightmare

You try not to choke

The grass is not greener

Regardless of side

The monsters are coming

With nowhere to hide

The devil’s a seamstress

That’s stitching your scars

Your night sky is empty

Just black with no stars

Go forth and find shelter

 the rain’s never-ending

Your fate unaware

The message I’m sending

Give up there’s no hope

Every truth hides a lie

Every word is a weapon

Life’s destined to die
