Locked In

I'm locked in this room
With nothing to do.
Can you show me the
real you?
When the lights go out,
I'm blinded from the screams
And hurt that fills my veins.
If only you could be with me,
Through this        .
This causes me to not 
To breathe and die.
The hurt comes rushing back.
With all the pain and     ,
Inside of it.
I scream yet noone hears,
I yell yet noone cares.

I'm locked in abox that's for sale.
I think that I was sent
By mail.
Love is so tragic.
It feels like a diesease,
Chewing away at my insides.
What if I was to die beside you?
Would you cry or
Just laugh it off?
I'm slipping away...
