My life...my existence,
is filled with nothingness,
a vast tormenting darkness,
a cold that spreads through my very soul and shatters my heart into piercing shards that rip and tear at my paper skin!
I see faces in the shadows,
lost souls I no longer recognise, shrouded in a suffocating fog,
tainting my view of their true form!
Monsters in the shadows whispering poison,
turning against one another, a broken war in a shattered mind,
deafening silence and torturous screams,
no escape from my prison of inner turmoil!
Disfigured dark creatures fight and bicker,
slash and claw, growing louder and louder,
tearing at the veil making it harder to hide what I have become...
A black mirror stands in the darkest corner,
surrounded with mutters of hate and loathing,
I approach to peer into the cold black ice,
a glimpse of soulless,
empty eyes staring back...
...the monster I have become
