Shattered Mind

DC Martin

Locked away in solitude, within the shadows I remain,
awash in a sea of phantoms, adrift in a storm of pain
ghostly gasps around me, haunting voices of sins described,
without a scream I live this dream, within my shattered mind.

I see a scene of sadness, A vision of days gone by,
a revelation of what awaits me here beneath this long dead sky,
these bars they comfort little, to protect me, or those outside,
either way it's how it's supposed to be, within a shattered mind.

No sense of how things ought to be, no comprehension or logic here,
for a shattered mind just passes the time, grinning from ear to ear.
remorse has long since faded, if ever it did exist,
and happiness is overrated, for insanity I call bliss.

Locked away in solitude, within this shadow I'll remain,
wrapped comfortably within insanity, with a shattered mind to blame
