The Last Whispers of Life

Heaven above, hell below.
I looked in the mirror and ugly showed.
Punishing myself and living in hell.
Wished I was gone, flashes before your eyes,
but they said you didn't know I existed, no matter how hard I try.
Left alone with tears, anger, hate, and what else?
Living in long nightmare,
And I can't end this dream.
The pain of the past will always remain,
Living in the shadows, like broken glass.
If everyone felt pain and sadness like I do,
the world would be scarred.
I never knew
My heart was stolen,
by all the hatred I had and have,
Scars, secrets, lies spread.
Nothing to see, now I'm blind.
Nothing to feel,
my heart was stolen for me.
If you listen closely you'll hear a cry for love, who will that be?
If you can hear me at all, speak up please.
Because hell is empty,
all the demons are here,
Now I know where I stand,
Staring back at the ground.
Seeing my reflection from my puddle of broken dreams.
I've come to figure out there was a seed.
Ready to bloom, in need to love.
And when that seed is ready to come out,
out of the shadows into the light,
you will see what you have not seen before,
It hasn't been the true me all along.
