i survive.

still standing
from a storm
of both ice and fire
i couldn't explain it
if i tried
i am alive
living in the shadow
of all that's been
of the solid brick wall
built to keep me
no sunlight
no sunlight for me
keeping me pale
keeping me sick
i can run for days
in shadows
no sunlight
i imagine
it's my own imagination
designing the levels
of my nightmares
cold and damp
always dark
but for some reason
i scale the walls
i keep running
i smile for you
for this is not your fault
i would never bring you in
further than this
you deserve a smile
until you don't
i avoid mirrors
so i don't have to see
no sunlight
this is how
i survive
