The Darkness Within
Wholeness gone
The irrevocable loss of who I am
Follows me everywhere
An emptiness screams from my soul
Darkness flows around me
 
Like Darth Vader
I rot from within
Grasping I reach for the light
That beckons me from Death
Reaching for the Hope
Calling for the Peace
Pleading for the Forgiveness
 
Trying to walk I stumble
Stuck in the mud I struggle
Breaking free I run
Away from the pain

Away from the Darkness that lay within.
