Falling in the Dark

By Shaded_Iris

Gritting your teeth
Cruelty shines on my face
This fear cannot be escaped
You can't drink away the pain

I was shooting for a shot.
I was shooting for a shot..
Hoping for a puncher's chance in a fight.

I've given all got
Broken all apart

When you hit the wall
You barely leave a mark
Once you start to fall
You'll start to wonder
Will I ever stop,

Falling in the dark
