Dark Skies


Empty, cold, and hollow,
My thoughts are slow to follow,
I only see the dark in the sky,
Never do I not want to die.

I know you hate who I have become,
I'm sorry for all that I've done,
Would you just hate me more
If I told you that you have broken me to my core?

Far too many have a shattered soul,
So I am forced to play a bright role,
There are too many who rely on me,
I am not even allowed to utter a plea.

So long I have looked
At the knife, blade, and hook,
So much I want the metal to draw,
Yet I fear the pain that will gnaw.

Death comes for us all,
Is it bad to want to fall?
I only see the dark in the sky,
Never do I not want to die.
