This place . . .

My heart aches
And a drowsy numbness pains
I wish I could fade away
Dissolve and quite forget it all
This place where youth grows pale
And spectre thin and dies
Where but to think is to be full of sorrow
Where love turns into hatred
Something that made you smile makes you frown

A voice that you so much loved
This place where hope vanishes
And you feel a constant stab in your heart
Where to laugh is crucifixion
Where love slowly turns into hatred
Something that made you ecstatic makes you frown
This place where dreams are shattered
Where to speak a single word is a struggle
Where love slowly turns into hatred
Something that made you scream makes you sick
This place where things fall apart
Where to stay awake all night is common
Where love slowly turns into hatred
Something that made you blush makes you frown
This place where fantasies turn into nightmares
This place where day seems as long as years
This place that even the brave and courageous loathe
This place where the old lose breathe and strength
This place . . .
