Shian Daley


My life is like an Abyss
So dark, cold and lonely
With no one to talk to
Sometimes it's nice
Because no one is there to hurt you

The more I feel pleased with myself
Is the more other people suffer
They try to take me out
But I just wanna stay in this gutter

So I just silently sit there
Never wanting to go home,
Maybe one day I will get out
Of there
Then maybe... JUST MAYBE I
won't be so alone
