Darkness enfolds me in its arms
asphyxiating the life from this body
In a death grip, it dares not give
up its fragile hold
Eternal abyss swallows my soul
Tired of fighting, I give in to the chasm
peaceful and cold
sweet comforting darkness
beckoning slowly casting its spell
Obscurity surrounds me
drawing me close to its bosoms
Whispers, a lovers breath I cannot feel
sounds of sorrow, I no longer hear
I'm Alone in this eternal abyss
So far tapped, I don't believe I'll ever be found
Am I damned to die in this abode?
Have I sentenced myself to my own private hell?
Am I prisoner in my own self?
Rapt in pity I held the key that unlocks my cage
Now rusted from my tears
Condemn, remaining always locked away from the world
introvert and deserted discovery eludes me
Eternal abyss welcomes me
