inside me

is a dark place to be

colorless and empty

oh take me away

do I even belong

in this chaotic song

hurricanes inside my head

crumbled paper on my bed

if you say I haven’t tried enough

with due respect shut up

no meaning no pleasure

wish this grief could be measured

how these hollowed sensations haunt

this abyss that is my heart

oh take me away
