The vagueness of an empty cry
Echoing across the sky
And filling my mind.
A sadness beyond all time.
Blank.

Shadows dance across the land,
Taking up my trembling hand,
Inviting me to be their lady
Gentle caresses, sweet but fading.
Dark.

Atrophy of heart and soul
Has taken such a heavy toll
On those who stay living on
To try and sing life's bitter song.
Silent.

Darkness erodes my very core
Like ocean waves upon the shore.
A lover calls across the distance,
But nothing can break this trance.
Pain.

Every birth is a cursed occurance,
For death is waiting for his chance
To take away our every thing,
And leave behind only a dream.
Oblivion.
