Ritual

He holds it in another day

Bitter lonely words he can't say

Stress and anger cloud his mind

A hopeless soul longs for truth it cannot find

To cope with sadness he must face

He goes into a quiet place

Breaking the silence of his heart again

He purges the rage with ink and pen

Cutting out the pain with every word he writes

He bleeds it onto solid white

For all the tears he shed alone

He gives a testament to every one

For all the guilt and secret shame

He makes the words reflect the same

Nevermind the hands of the clock

His heart is what tells him when to stop

His emotions drained to the very last

He's given it all he has

The burden lifted when the truth is said

He finds a place to lay his head
