In the night I lie awake
Pray to the gods my soul to take

My mind wanders uselessly across the barren land

My eyes catch the scar that fades from my left hand

What a memory it brings
Of past pain it sings

I smile in the dark

Simply because I will be the only one to know that I did

A slight shade, darker than night
Streaks past, then quickly moves out of sight

I sit up quickly
But I need not fear
I know exactly who is the one lingering here

My protector
My friend
My demon child within

All of these things I love you for
I hate myself because of it even more

I'd call out to you
But I don't know your name
I feel like your one like me, if not the same

Through the shadows I could glimpse you, 
If I really have tried
Your shape leaves a trail, a shade darker than night
Somehow, I know you will go away completely
Come the morning light

But for now I have you
So much more than I've ever had
For, I cannot tell you how long, it's been

A grin the color of bright pale white
Breaks through the dark and shines in my eyes
Something new 
Something true
Cutting through the lies

All at once I know for sure
That so much is at stake
I couldn't ask for more
When it's already too much too late

Time has proven to be
Not on my side
But in all reality..
Was it ever with me?
