Entrapped by Darkness


Paint the wall, peel the paint

leave it empty before i faint

color the rainbow, make it fade

erase the cuts and scars i have made

strike a cloud to make it cry,

just enough so i won't die

draw a painting, let it disappear,

just to make my eyes drop one tear

cut my wrist, then let it heal,

for i have many that just won't seal

drain the clouds, make it rain

to hide the tears i cannot refrain


Hurtful words are venom to our ears

it only adds to our many fears,

Think twice before you hit or speak

you dont want to be the reason why someone bleeds

depression is a closet of war

fight against bullying to avoid that door
