Empty Rooms & Darkened Hallways

napalmhamster's picture

I am just another wanderer here,
Just another voluntary prisoner
In the house under the dry rain
I’m just another worthless loser
Enveloped by the pain
Of these empty rooms and darkened hallways

I am the shadow on the wall
Split the void with my silent call
Too dark to ever see
I can be your best friend
Or your worst enemy

I am my own jailer
In my self-built penitentiary
Deep in the dark recesses of my own mind
I am such a fucking failure
Who knows what else you’ll find
In these empty rooms and darkened hallways

I am the shadow on the wall
Split the void with my silent call
Too dark to ever see
I can be your best friend
Or your worst enemy

How do I silence
These screams inside my head?
Sometimes I wish
That I was simply dead
Sometimes I want
To jump out of my skin
Fuck it
I’m giving up
I’m falling down again

I am the shadow on the wall
Split the void with my silent call
Too dark to ever see
I can be your best friend
Or your worst enemy

Wow

That was intense. Good pacing and images; nice work.

Are you hanging on to something useless just because you think it's beautiful?
