30. The Poison Within

The sadness builds, the pressure inside

From cells long locked, the poison resides

I feel like crying, no place left to hide

Like the need to vomit, but your body won't reply

The pressure builds, from deep inside

In my throat, my head, from behind my eyes

Somewhere deep within, where the poison resides

I want to experience, the feeling of letting go

It's what I need, but my mind, my body, my soul says no

Even now my eyes well up, wanting to comply

But that's as far as it goes, I don't know why

A drop from my life, the poison spills out

Like a guard in a prison, my mind sealed the route

It starts to return, deep inside it resides

I'm just to tired, to tired to try

From darkness deep withing, sadness does win

But the longing is still there, to release the poison within.


"A look into my prison, my mind" - Steve Weygint
