Behind These Walls

Published: May 2013

They watch the world
with open eyes.
They haunt the world
with an open mind.
They see you move
as you live in this world.

But behind these walls
lies a deep, dark universe,
one where the light can't shine through.
A world where they lurk,
they play and hide.
Behind these walls, there's a world inside.

If you dare to look
or even hear,
go ahead, face your fear.
You'll join this world
one cruel day.
So sad it'll be,
but they can't hear you say...

Behind these walls
lies a deep dark universe,
one where the light can't shine through!
A world where they lurk
and play and hide.
Behind these walls there's a world inside...
