Face Of Darkness

95c54aef8a9d9127d31f219942c38e64

Shall I cower in the face of Darkness?
Let it take me by the hand into its bosom
Fall victim as the ones that have gone before
As it woos me like prey being drawn by the hunter
I am unable to be pulled back from its clutches anymore
They all say, “You must fight harder,” but my strength is gone
Darkness shall be my captor and I will be in perfect peace at last©

Anymore

Am I lost to all sanity? I turn around and nothing is familiar anymore
I search in this sky of wonder and mystery yet still there’s nothing there
Where have all the pretty things gone? I feel lost, forgotten and in ruin
It’s all a maze of the obscure, curious and foreign, where the mind breaks
Puzzle pieces with no color, edges gone, nothing fits together anymore©

All I Was

503d9d8ad341ccb0e4b4228b6b83078c

There is nothing left in my veins
Last drop of blood is poured free
An empty vessel with no life force
All I was has been taken from  me

A dead man walking is now my fait
There’s no more to give in my heart
So soon I will only be a bag of bones
Then vultures come to tear me apart

I’m just a shadow of my former self
None would even recognize me now
As I go through this life and the next
One thing I hope that fate will allow

I’ll pray that in the next life I can find
The only love that I have ever known
With each moment that we are apart
Is pain for all sins that I must atone

There is nothing left in my veins
Last drop of blood is poured free
An empty vessel with no life force
All I was has been taken from  me©

Darkness Remains

Holding me down you impale me
You don’t even hide your smile
Oh, eyes of someone so vile

A wolf in sheep clothing you bite
Drawing blood as you go deep
Won’t let me my life keep

Driving a spike through my heart
You pierce me to my very core
Can no longer live anymore

Carve out my soul you She Devil
All that remains is now yours
Nothing left but this corps

But darkness remains©

See Through Me

b690914ee208d7feb6aa477183acea1b

You see through me, for I cannot hide my heart away
Longing for a reprieve from feeling darkness someday

You know how black my soul is, you can see the hues
But yet how you can love this vessel, I’m so confused

How can I deserve one as you is such a great mystery
Our true love is the kind that goes in books of history

One day I hope that all the black from me fades away
Longing for a reprieve from feeling darkness someday©
