Dark retreat

i find my retreat

In a place unknown.

It can never be found

And never be shown.


The place I find

Is no place to be.

For there is pain  and despair

As far as the eye can see.


Dark and cold its hard to breathe

This place I'm in, you wouldn't believe

The piercing screams tear at my soul,

Everyone's stories wanting to be told.


I want to listen

I want to help.

I will take their pain

To set them free


Then I realise what I'm meant to see

All this pain and distress

It's all coming

From me.
