WHEN THE BLACK MOON RISES AGAIN

In life my eyes were empty

no trace of love was in my soul

I tried to find compassion

but my heart was just too cold

~~~

Happiness has never known me

not then, not now, nor ever will

I've excepted what I really am

as I sit upon this lonely hill

~~~

This grudge I hold against them

their warmth their beating heart

While mine is cold and empty

it was from my mortal start

~~~

The darkened bitter sunset

slowly fades then disappears

Hiding solely in its destination

behind the mountains tiers

~~~

The darkness starts to lighten

I close my eyes from immortal sin

My thirst shall once more awaken

when the black moon rises again

I STAND IN DARKNESS

I stand in darkness

lonliness is my mate

I've become very weary

awaiting my fate

~~~

Souls are lost

not finding their places

Hiding in corners

not showing their faces

~~~

Blackness surrounds me

the lights growing dim

Will i stand here forever

will i always be grim

~~~

My empty body

has grown hollow and cold

Theres nothing here

for my numb arms to hold

~~~

My eyes are like marbles

unmeaningful their crys

My soul slowly fades

as my broken heart dies

~~~

A voice in the distance

is calling my name

death has come for me

bearing no shame

~~~

His demise acts quickly

so evil his kiss

As he takes me away

will i be missed

~~~
