Into The Darkness Again

I feel the shadows closing in, so I see
Their cold embrace is so dear to me
This love they hold only for thee
A feeling I thought lost within my entity

I hear the shadows calling out my name
Their secrets only revealed within the pain
This rippled window crafted just for me
A mirror to a different person to be

I let the shadows follow behind
The darkness now consuming my mind
As pain and hurt ambush my chi
A shadow stands where once was me

When the day's dreamt away by the bye
I stand tall, and stare at the sky
Dark darkness comes closer as it may
Alone now and always I stand and stay

I feel the winter bite once more,
As it steadily grows colder and sore
The wind calls out to the night to say
Let the icy dark shadows out to play

As the treetops sweep the inky black ceiling
Once more closer to my dark way feeling
Walking upon my dark, dark dream just so
Into the deep depths where none dare go

Into the darkness of the night's path
This monster that's me wreaks his wrath
The place where all live in fear
On those who dare venture here

The sky darkens, and I stare up at the moon
I can only remember I have to leave here soon
I knew I could not stay here for too long
But, from where I stand, nothing feels wrong

Awaken into the dream I don't want to face
It's not safe here in this unworldly place
My time has come for me to depart from here
And fall into the safe embrace of all that I fear
