The clouds are closing in

Trying to push through today

But the clouds are closing in

They are there to remind me

That darkness hovers

It still exists within

Just beyond my currents thoughts

The darkness seeps through

I feel the pain as it starts to burn

Then I close my eyes and see

All the things I have seen before

And what is in front of me

The path is still there

It breaks off here again

Asking me if I want to go back

To my land of pretend



I have tried to drift away into nothing

But something always brings me back

I have tried to drift into the valley of shadow

But something will not let me go

I have tried to escape this shit storm that is my life

But something keeps me here

That something is hope
