In my obsession

I am hopeless

I refuse to believe

That the light of hope will shine

I tend to assume from the stories I now perceive

I am trapped in confusion and misery

It is only a fallacy that…

Everything will be fine

I am alone

It is pointless to think

I can be liberated from stone

The walls hold unbreakable strength

I flinch at the reminding pain, still I don’t believe

My heart and soul will heal again

This feeling has consumed me

There's nothing anyone can say to change my mind

When I’ve reached the bottom…

I work my way back up to the top

    I can really relate to feeling hopeful and disillusioned at the same time! This is a really clever structure.
