Out of the Shadows

Close your eyes
Hold on tight
You sit there Lost and confused
Wondering if you could slip into a coma

It seems like a nightmare
Your vision is glazy
Your mind is hazy
Teeth clattering
Chin trembling
You sit there trying to hide
Trying to die
You believe the shadows will keep you safe
The shadows call your name

But in the light, it calls for your life
To be lived
To be loved

You're scared to be loved
You're scared to live
Your past experiences keep you cowering in the shadows
In the shadows you stay
Alone and afraid
Out of the shadows a mere glimmer of hope
Of a world you'll sadly never know
