Tomorrow comes just like today,

broken, lonely

clouds of grey

 

Darkness has no favorite type;

the rich, the poor

the black, the white

 

Trapped inside, your vision black,

once your view fades,

no going back. 

 

Your mind enslaved unto the darkness,

in which you are

alone

 

Amidst your pain, your echoed cries,

you hear a noise and dry your eyes.

The room is dark

but still, you see,

a nearby, glowing,

silhouette of me

 

The darkness seems to never end,

but its okay, you've got a friend

in me

 

Days so dark.

And though you know you're not alone

you're stuck in here,

there's no way home!

 

So take my hand, and when you slip,

I won't let go, I'll keep my grip,

I'll pull you in, your feet to ground,

I promise you,

you will not drown.
