Lost in a cloud of absolute darkness

Longing for peace of heart

Empty eyes stare into unending space

As the body and soul grow apart

xx

Fragile fingers clasp a glass flask

Staining his pale lips red

A ringing heard in the distance

And all that is left are broken shreds

xx

Darkness creeps into the room

Forgotten spirit takes it's toll

His flimsy body bleeds forever

Tormenting his already broken soul

xx

Staring at the burning coals

Drooling helplessly at the mouth

Wispy white hair falls into his eyes

His skin wrinkles even more as he pouts

xx

Tears run down his pale cheeks

As angels and devils come to him

He silently lays there on his deathbed

And all the voices grow dim

xx

Tears turn to drops of blood

As he feels the end coming near

He lays there silently shaking

Waiting for death, waiting to hear

xx

Is it the call of the angels?

Or is it the devil's knell?

He closes his bleeding eyes finally

Waiting to hear heaven's bell

xx

The shadows from the darkest depths

Falling on a face full of death

His translucent withering skin

Breaths just one final breath
