Into The Darkness With Nobody


I left my dreams on display

For anybody to betray

Now I squander around the ground

Hitting bottom lower and lower

Abandoned by friends

Deserted by them

And what for?

I lift my shadows off of the floor

Just to sink under pressure

When I dive off' the cliff

I won't be living after that

In the brink of darkness

I drown in the low tides

Imagining the deep end

And suffering the thought of it all

It must be too late to feel any better

The nights are the worst

In the mornings I am numb

Until the sun goes down

And shows me no love

During my favorite time of day

__I have no one

Lonely nights leave me hurting

Sunsets aren't the same anymore

Tired of the world

And all around

My messed up life should be getting


____you would think

But instead I am empty

If God knows man should not be alone

Then why am I?
