the abyss is a metaphor for depression. It symbolizes the urge to give in and quit.. or jump into the void.

THE ABYSS

here i stand on the brink of emptiness
fighting back the fire burning in my chest
embers are all i have left to hold
ashes of life are all that i know

breathless i gaze at the widening abyss
the gravity of this situation relentless
kneeling down at the edge of this hole
reeling from anger that rips at my soul

I'm trying so hard to keep it together
I'm trying so hard not to let go forever

inpenetrable darkness is holding my gaze
embracing the emptiness lost in the haze
grim visions of graveskeep coming in waves
reccurring dreams of escaping the maze

but i'mstanding at the edge of emptiness
my only possession the breath in my chest

the darkness surrounds me as i plummet below
arms held wide open as i fall in this hole

inpenetrable darkness is holding my gaze
embracing the emptiness, lost in the haze
grim visions of graveskeep coming in waves
reccurring dreams of escaping the maze

I'm trying so hard to keep it together
I'm trying so hard not to let go forever
