When all the light is gone
What is left but darkness
When all the time has gone
What is left
But the end
What is there
To defend
A constant benediction
Of fallacies
And lies
A constant demise
Clouds of hope
Wisped away
When fear is infinite
And joy is sparse
What nightmares buckle
To demons fierce
What is left
When all this leaves
What is left
Tell me please
Tell me please
Tell me please if you can
What cards are dealt
And held in hand
What dreams can there be
In an insomniacs mind
What nightmares
What thoughts
What thoughts
What, there are thoughts
When all light is gone
What is left but darkness
What, there are thoughts
Heterodoxic reputes
Insouciant blasé
Do you care
When death is already so near
And ne’er
To speak of life again
What then
What, when all this leaves
What is left
Tell me please
Tell me please
Tell me
Whispers
Promises
Lies
I swear to never speak of fear
Not here
Not now
While death is near
We wouldn’t want it to overhear
No, I will not speak it.
