One day I woke up from sleep And you were not beside me. I looked for you around the house, Called you name but got back none. Could see undone dishes from the last night Stilettos and broken bottles still beneath the bed But you were gone. Your soothing aroma was still fresh Yet your absence baffled me. Suddenly I found myself in this pit of Hell, I lay there, being tormented Hoping someone, if not you, would ring the bell And make the pit illuminated. I screamed for company But all of them go through my scars. How can no one hear me? Locked in this concrete cage, looking for help Can no one hear me? For so long I’ve been screaming. I try so hard to get you to see But I keep on bleeding, Thinking it will never be. Get me out of this pit It’s dark and cold And I need company a bit. I’m getting exhausted, it’s getting cold Hear my cry, loud and shredding Listen very closely It’s hard to hear while dreaming, Just like a red herring So try and get comfortable and cozy Can you hear me screaming?
