Sunken Skin

 
Up against my brown skin
Idk where the pain begins
Underneath this brown skin

Look into my eyes
I can see the darkness within
thats because my eyes don't lie

I heart,
I feel you somewhere deep in
but I can't control the emptiness

It flutters, beats, life inside
I'm a walking corpse
I'm carrying extra weight

Pulls my flesh from the inside
If only my insides matched my outsides
chest stabs and backstabs

Replayed memories
battle conscious thoughts
past still corrupting my future

Its my fault
I can't escape this
I want out

It screams for life
But its suffocating her
Darkness wins
and again I'm out

Still I rise
back onto a darkness
A sunken place

I'm nothing, only brown skin'
a corpse
