Envisage

Pining for a shadow
To fit the shape
Place it upon a stable surface
Able to withstand
As you crush its means of existence

Desperate to control
Searching for a clue
A key to fit this door
The missing piece to this puzzle
Just to burn the evidence
Break the key inside the lock
Tear the piece into nothing

No one escapes
No one can leave
Everything burns
Ashes consume
Suffocating

Collect upon misery
Shelf it for the children
Pathetic trophies
Collecting the dust
And aging sympathy

Please hold out your hand
So that I may see the truth
That there was one there
To save me all along

No one escapes
No one can leave
Everything burns
Ashes consume
Suffocating
