When the darkness becomes your only friend and hope.

The darkness within me,

conceal and hide my soul.

With no grasp, I start to fall.

The beginning to an end.

My mind no longer, I can mend.

The darkness I welcome,

Fill my mind and soul,

Cover my eyes,

Takes away the pain.

The heavy pouring rain,

Mixing with the shedded tears,

No one knows and no one sees,

What I have done to myself again.

The darkness so welcoming,

The only touch I enjoy,

As my blood pours sweetly out.

I can feel the slow of my heartrate,

The agony of today,

I can no longer stand,

I cannot fix nor help myself,

I start to fall within the abyss,

I single cut,

Deepened and dark,

I so hope it does not miss.
