THE ABYSS


l_b8db24e508cb468a824a45636e2b8187.jpg

here i stand on the brink of emptiness
fighting back the fire burning in my chest
embers are all i have left to hold
ashes of life are all that i know



l_b7fcacbcc7174e5482dd92b197b04693.jpg


breathless i gaze at the widening abyss
the gravity of this situation relentless
kneeling down at the edge of this hole
reeling from anger that rips at my soul



l_53c81889774148c38bc4c4f3562fcc8e.png


I'm trying so hard to keep it together
I'm trying so hard not to let go forever


l_0ba6765da3f94e33b9d58c869a7dee03.jpg


inpenetrable darkness is holding my gaze
embracing the emptiness lost in the haze
grim visions of graveskeep coming in waves
reccurring dreams of escaping the maze

but i'mstanding at the edge of emptiness
my only possession the breath in my chest

the darkness surrounds me as i plummet below
arms held wide open as i fall in this hole

inpenetrable darkness is holding my gaze
embracing the emptiness, lost in the haze
grim visions of graveskeep coming in waves
reccurring dreams of escaping the maze



l_23fad81588dc4811b6b14fe652f38063.jpg



I'm trying so hard to keep it together
I'm trying so hard not to let go forever
