Another place and time

Today I rise with hope

Hoping things will stay this way

Hoping that this time

I will have a hand to hold

There is so much more to me

Then one story to be told

There are many layers

Many scars beneath my skin

If you want to know who I am

The story starts within

I am shaped from betrayal

Pain and many lies

Shaped by those who have come and gone

With no need for goodbyes

If you look at me

I will show you what lies beneath

But only if you take my hand

And wander with me today

Only if you take my hand

And except me as I am

Broken but still breathing

Mended here and there

I have dreams that keep me going

When it hurts I take myself there

To another place and time

That exists inside my mind

Come with me and you will see

All that is left of me

Nyx

In the shade

There is no sunshine in the shade

The clouds are rolling in

Where does it end

When did it begin

Nyx

I will fight for us

Today all I want to do is float away

I do not want to feel

I do not want to breathe

Every breath brings the pain

I hold the girl

I let her cry

I tell her we do not just fight for us

That we are not ready to die

We just continue on

Suffering as we do

Otherwise we will lose this fight

The one that means everything to us

We must save the others

We must free the damned

Nyx

A place for us

Deep within my soul

I know there are pieces left

Parts that will one day make me whole

Someday you will see

That there is so much more to me

Then the girl who walked away

There is so much more to me

Than just one story to be told

One day when I walk the earth

There will be others behind me

I will show them the way

I will show them where there is land

A place for all of us

It exists inside my heart

It is the home of the forgotten

The ones who were once lost

The ones that thought they were dammed

All they needed was compassion

I give to all of you my hand

With all my love,

Nyx

I let her cry

I walk inside myself

I see the girl crouched over

Crying to herself

I feel the pain she feels

I feel the emptiness inside

I sit beside her

I draw her close

I hold her head to my heart

Then I let her cry

Nyx

Hope

I saw myself in someone else today

I wanted to take her hand

And give her hope

I wanted to tell her I understand

Nyx

I win

It’s all about beating them

That’s what keeps me going

I always win

My heart still beats in my chest

I feel the anger build

I will never let you destroy me

I raise my shield

I hold my sword

Come and get me

Nyx

Today I fight

Today I am fighting

The void within my soul

If I do not it will destroy me

Everything will fade away

No one else can save me

Because no one else can see

The abyss that is beneath me

The pain that pulls me down

I have to find away

I have to save myself today

Nyx

I will paint you black

I suffer every single day

There is nothing that will take the pain away

I exist in my own hell

What I feel inside

Know one will ever know

The pain is so great

It quickly turns to hate

I will rip you down

Before I raise my voice

I won’t need to

I will paint you black

Then I will walk away

Because in the end

There is nothing left

I do not exist in this world

And I never will

Nyx
