Sorrow's painful grip,

imprisons my icy heart.

Everything seems to slip,

away from my grasp.


Darkness falls over this place,

oozing from every corner.

It's light that I fear,

that which illuminates my soul.


As night descends,

I watch the sun leave leave what's left of me behind.

I am filled with memories of a happier day,

a happier day that was never mine.
