A Labyrinth Of Pain

She can hear the voices every single day
Relentless & scolding, they hold such sway
Completely held down by these negative forces
She’s endlessly buried by these anonymous sources

A labyrinth of pain, a flood of depression
She can’t stop the bleeding no matter the compression
The throbbing persists, a constant reminder
Her predicament caused by a diabolical designer

The shouting so piercing it deafens her appeals
It smothers her intent to realign her wheels
She deteriorates to the point of massive fatigue
She’s no longer the centre of mysterious intrigue

Faced with the prospect of continuous decline
A puzzling dilemma she’s unable to define
Ever more doubtful it’s a passing phase
If only the voices would offer her praise
