Convinced I've been that my unseen death, is my only worst fear

Knowing theres no time, no cure when its cold fingers creep near

Macabre danger of it so dark, wrapping around my soul

Damning me to haunting ghost, with yearnings to be whole

Near death experiences tell of peace and walking into light

Seems no soul finds the dawn or black darkness that we mortals fight

Concluding then, that evil lurks only here where we feast

Preying on each other's weaknesses, in each of us a beast

Your tongue has sacrificed my being, carved me bloody strife

You drank my soul, spit me out, cursing me to lonely life

My veins now pour crimson regret, my tourniquet despite it flows

In the darkness of the light I lay my bones in neat little rows
