Crimson Prison

In a lonely prison
Crafted from crimson,
I am confined
Here, silence reigns,
An empty space
For the condemned to stay
Darkness casts over all,
Leaving nary a sliver of light
In a lonely prison
Crafted from crimson,
I stare at towering walls
Within them, I see those
Who are damned,
Just as I am
The distorted faces groan,
Pleading for their
Suffering to end
Someday, I will be
Just like them
Left to rot in this hell,
Past mistakes making
For miserable company
In a lonely prison
Crafted from crimson,
In this world of blood
And soiled memories,
I remain, regretting eternally
Here I will stay,
For the rest of my days
