By Natalie Cribari

Tears of regret
Will take me away
Send me to a place
Where I can forever stay.
Retained in a cell of darkness
Where my thoughts dwell inside my brain
A straight jacket of bitter memories
Holds back my body, while my mind goes insane.
My eyes burn through the darkness
Outside, my pain drips from the sky
It seeps through the walls and burns me like acid
Leaving me slowly to die.
