Trapped in Hell

I stand alone trapped in this hell

People talk to me

I should know who they are

They clearly know me

I stand alone an empty shell

And feel the tears begin to swell

Not of anger, Not of grief

Of a frustration deep beneath

Knowing that I’m sinking.

A touch on my arm

Gentle, loving,

Causing no alarm

A smile, a kiss

And for a moment I am back

With a love I dearly miss

A moment that swiftly passes bye

It’s gone on and once again

I’m trapped inside

This human shell 

Trapped inside

This human hell

I cannot return

I cannot escape

This lonely place

That is my fate

I’m trapped inside and must go on

I’m trapped

I’m trapped
