alone i wander
in the dark
shadows crowding me
my tears of fear
fall upon my lips
i taste my pain in them
my hands grope blindly
through the void
my voice lost in the black
what is it that i seek?
i stumble along
no end in sight
my feet numb with pain
the infinity of life
heavy on my back
no mercy for my broken body
why is it that i live?
the smell of death is in the air
a balm to my weary soul
i head toward that enticing scent
falling along the way
but i must pick myself up
i must find the rose
that smells so sweet
that lures me with it's siren call
i shall continue on 'til the end
alone i wander in the dark
