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



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.
