Away from the light

At this moment all I yearn for is death

All I yearn for is peace

Peace from the darkness that haunts me

Peace from the pain

What I would not give for eternal rest

To not wake up tomorrow

To not have to pretend

To just say good bye to yesterday

And cease to exist today

All I do is float past you

In this shadow of forgotten dreams

Where cob webs have formed

And cracks run through the floor

The only thing that is solid is the tomb

This slab of concrete before me

Closing me in the dark

The air is pushed out of me

As the darkness blows out the light

At this moment my will is gone

Today I submit to my friend Darkness

He has come for me

I let him take my hand as we descend

Further away from the light

Darkness is my only friend tonight
Nyx
