Succumb To The Darkness

By happilydepressed

I saw my soul leave me in that moment so long ago
I replaced it with my love the darkness and things i still don't know
I left my heart laying dripping bloody wet and quivering
My mind's been reclusive, cold, and shivering
My skin since has withered and my eyes have dried out
And now my thoughts have become all i think about
I fell so low and so deep I'm destined to rise no more
But with a sream and a prayer i was saved of that i was sure
Perhaps I've found beatitude in the solitude
But my sense of security is broken when wandering spirits intrude
I feel it's all closing in over me
I'll soon be buried unable to break free
The worms will feast for some time to come
And to my true love the darkness i will succumb
