Grey mantle, grey mantle,
Covering this scarred earth,
Broken light, broken light,
What happened in the twilight?

The mist surrounding everything,
I look up and do not see the trees,
I hear crows, and children's screams,
Closing my eyes, I feel good.

It is dark, it is night,
I am alone, in this park,
Full of statues, statues moving,
Whispering, calling me.

No one is here, all alone,
A feeling of relief sweeps over me,
In this spooky place, in this dark hour,
My heart feels at peace.

Grey mantle, grey mantle,
Covering this scarred earth,
Broken light, broken light,
What happened in the twilight?

In this dark night,
I ran from the world,
And I found refuge within the darkness,
The solitude of the night.

The mist so thick,
You could cut it with a knife,
I saw nothing but where my feet tread,
Neither sky nor street-lamp.

But I did see, there was light,
From the sun or the moon,
From the angel or the demon,
I could and cannot tell.

In the dark void, my depression,
Fell into oblivion, I didn't want to leave,
For fear it would come back,
For light brings emotion.

I saw men, women, another world,
Silhouettes of all my woes,
Yet none of my fears,
But soon the shadow swallowed all.

A cell-phone, woeful reminder,
There is a world outside the night,
Outside a park, outside my solitude,
When the mist rose, the numbness disappeared.

Now I sit here, aware I hate this life,
Aware I have hurt and been hurt,
Aware that the night brings comfort,
And that solitude is my guide.

AN: This is weird but it is from a personal experience, I was feeling awful
the other day (and still am), and well coming home from a party I realized
my parents weren't there and I had no key so I had to wait for them to
return and went for a walk in the park.well I couldn't see anything from
the fog and despite the fact it was in quite a freaky area (drug dealers,
rapists, etc) I just felt much better than ever before.I hoped the ruddy
place would swallow me never to be seen again but.heh..not that lucky. And
I had to leave when my mom called to tell me they were home.
