Back To......



Back to the flames,
Held in the fire,
Helpless, weak,
Dated to expire,
Back to the questions,
Answers a riddle,
Not above or below,
Somewhere in the middle,
Back to the loneliness,
And the nothing it brings,
As bitter as the cold alone,
Listen while silence sings,
Back to shadows,
An abyss, a black hole,
Feel the devil.
Rip at the soul,
Back to the emptiness,
Saddness drips from the eyes,
Without hope,
Only negative rreplies,
Back to numb,
The heart minus a beat,
Back to the flame,
Deeper ...deeper into it's heat..........................BAD-Mc..<3
