Wasteland (poem)

Empty, alone
Surrounded by life
Swallowed by darkness
Drowning by strife
Target for anger
Time bomb of fear
Wanting to be close
But please don’t come near
Reaching ever upward
Happiness beyond grasp
Sentenced to heartbreak
A living death that, forever, lasts
Sun shining down
Can not penetrate the soul
The barren soil of the heart
Can never be made whole
Inspiring hate and anger
The toxic mind of the world
Twisted, ugly, crazy
In the wasteland of a girl
Paying an endless penance
Eaten alive by the debt
Fighting to find a way out
But darker it continues to get
