How dark is my heart through these times?
Within these shadows figure laugh,
without remorse or care.
From the past of outreached hands,
to joy has stopped and will not last,
Within the darkness, a heart can drown,
without a scream, without a sound.
In the shadows of gray, commitment we slay.
Through the darkness no light can penetrate,
like no hands can capture my heart.
As the sounds of the sun go rushing by,
the darkness rules and light dies.
As I pray, lay me down to sleep,
within this moment of time,
As memories fade and desires we leave behind,
that we realize we lived in vain.
Black, spiraling down like a waterfall,
went through a crack in the wall,
and fell down upon us,
with ease and great depression
