Rebelious Jay

Rookie (Dec.29th,1987 / Bronx, New York)

I Left My Life

I travel the void, not thinking about direction
all seems the same to me-

Cold, calm, deserted
all seems apart of me-
I travel the void, walking further away from the light
all seems to frighten me-

Pretenders, Hypocrites, Fakes
all seem to know me-
I stop to catch my breathe
air seems to not enter me-

I travel the void-deeper, darker
Distance isn't an option to me-
'Enter the darkness' reads the sign,
Doesn't seem to phase me-

Cold sweat drips, knees shake, breathe draws weak
Death is after me-
Yet I continue to walk the void
I do this for me-
System shutting down, lungs collapse, skin turns blue
I did this for me-
