The clouds are closing in

Trying to push through today

But the clouds are closing in

They are there to remind me

That darkness hovers

It still exists within

Just beyond my currents thoughts

The darkness seeps through

I feel the pain as it starts to burn

Then I close my eyes and see

All the things I have seen before

And what is in front of me

The path is still there

It breaks off here again

Asking me if I want to go back

To my land of pretend


Wounded souls

You see a side of me 

That no one else can 

You understand me completely 

And accept me as I am 

I hope you are the one 

The one I was looking for 

I hope you let me in 

Because I know that you haven’t yet

I know this because we are the same 

We both sway back and forth 

Wounded souls once abandoned 

This is who we are
