When darkness calls me

I cannot hide

For the darkness

Is inside

I never know

Just what it will bring

For the darkness

Conceals many a thing

Sometimes it fills me

With a deep, dark desire

A need and longing

That burns like a fire

Or darkness may beckon

With a cold embrace

A deep, dark, depression

That I can't erase

The darkness can offer

Some peace for the heart

A time full of rest

In a land set apart

But darkness is dangerous

For it can also reveal

Secrets the heart

Longs to conceal

Darkness's voice

May likewise bring

The song of death

And it's terrible sting

Yes, darkness is with me

Throughout my day

No matter how I try

I can't turn away

Its call is strong

Its grip is firm

And it brings all this

From which I cannot turn

When darkness calls me

I cannot hide

For the darkness

Is inside
