I was being terrified by the darkness around me.

When I closed my eyes your face was all I could see.

Your arms were snaked around my waist.

You whispered soft soothing words to put my fears at rest.

Your gentle voice was ringing through the dark.

I felt your breath on my skin and I felt a spark.

Flash forward, now this darkness seems so welcome.

It represents everything my life has become.

Ever since you left, all that's left behind

Is a giant black hole somewhere in my mind.

I'm not afraid anymore, cause I have nothing to lose.

I learnt the consequences of the wrong words I choose.

Now I'm terrified of the darkness inside me.

When I close my eyes, your face is all I see.
