Memories Cold and harsh as winter Searing pain Stabbing my brain Like splinters Trapped beneath the skin That I couldn’t pull out So I pushed further in Forcing them deeper ‘Til they were hidden   From the outside They will never be evident But I will always feel them A part of me So I […]

Monsters dwell Beyond the walls I built to keep me From my hell So here I dwell Within these walls I built to keep me Safe and well I miss the world Beyond those walls I built to shield me From the cold So I construct worlds Within these walls That no reality Will ever […]
