Wrong Answer…

The deafening silence…
Rings in my ears…

Crushing my thoughts…
Emphasizing my fears…

In a world of darkness…
With no light to see…

I thought it was them…
But it’s deep within me…

There’s no one to blame…
And no finger to point…

Upon quiet reflection…
The realisation disappoints…

As the fire that started…
Was set by my own hand…

And it burned with a fury…
They could never understand…

But I blocked out the memory…
Of striking that match…

I ran from the chaos…
And managed to detach…

From everything within me…
And all that surrounds…

But the questioning voices…
Still followed me around…

They haunted my dreams…
Quietly whispering at night…

They left no escape route…
As I knew they were right…

Yet I knew all the risks…
Still ignored the advice…

My eyes were wide open…
Whilst my soul was alive…

As the electricity crackled…
And seeped into my soul…

It became a one way journey…
Into a deep black hole…

And now I stand here…
Staring out to sea…

Asking the right questions…
But the wrong answer is me…
