by Terri Lyn Stanfield

I'm all alone now, I have no one
And the siren's call to oblivion
Is sounding in my soul
And it is sweet music to my ears
The desire to answer it is great
I long for the peace of nothingness
The torments of the afterlife
Surely could be no more tortuous than this existence
And yet, somewhere within the depths of my being
Still exists a will to live
It is very faint, but it is there
And it will not be denied
So I must endure this aching in my soul
This miserable suffering that is my life
There will be no relief, no respite
Every moment will be agony
Even death will not put an end to it
I am ruined, destroyed, desolate
And I am lost forever
