Darkness squeeze the light from my soul,
thoughts tainted by shadows of destruction,
days sun defeated by sombre gray,
take the joy and lucidity away.
Dwell in the dark dank cave,
primal rage rising,
banality, in all its instinctive glory,
rend the flesh from the bones of lifes story.
Victim, fall now to clever words,
slicing deep, they bleed on the blade,
no match for a lifetime of battle,
the onslaught,, relentless, a debt I chattel.
Sleep now, and if you survive,
I will value the bond,
bandage the wounds in dawns vanity,
a pardon of darkness’s insanity.
