The Depth of Darkness

In the depths
Of this darkness
With all of the misery
None of the majesty
All of the hopes crushed
Your memories are erased
But for one kind
No joy or happiness
But the tragedies are untouched
The voices inside your head
Whisper to you about a dream
That is no longer there
You shrug your shoulders
Wonder why
Then walk away
And now
When you are unable to care
And love or hate do not exist
Inside your chest beats a heart
That has frozen
Perhaps because it has broken
The ice inside your veins
Has slowed you
Your beating heart moves
But just barely
No answers to your question why
You are so depressed
You can only wonder
Where did your life go
Why did this happen
How did it die
Who knows now
It doesn't matter
There is no answer
Only questions
And nothing to solve
The mysteries
Of the darkness
