The world used to be full
of silly games
and childish arguments,
lighthearted turf wars
and unimpressed parents.
The world used to be full of mirth,
The world used to make sense.

Now, demons lurk 'round dusty corners,
an iron collar adorns my neck,
Rusted chains snap taught and ringing,
without warning, without reason, without mercy.

Now, ghosts murmur sweetly, softly,
sirens singing to my pulse,
Snapped strings, harsh, discordant,
scarlet scrawls across my skin.

Now, novels stare with empty pages,
meaningless ink that never was,
Memories erased, covered, distorted,
a past forgotten amongst the ash.

The world used to be full
of silly games
and childish arguments,
lighthearted turf wars
and unimpressed parents.
The world used to be full of mirth,
The world used to, but then it changed.
Somewhere along the way, I lost myself.

nicely written. Loosing oneself is sadly, a very easy thing to do.....

Everyone loses themselves once in a while. The trick is realising. And you have done that. Now you can begin the horrid journey of finding yourself.
