the darkness settles


the darkness settles all around me
like a monster of thick black darkness set out to devour me

the darkness settles
i scream for help but none comes

the darkness settles
i look around franticly trying to find a way out of this waking nightmare

the darkness settles
i give up i let let the darkness settle

the darkness settles
this time like a soft blanket here to comfort me

the darkness settles
and i disappear in a cloud of settling darkness

the darkness settles
do you hear my screaming

the darkness settles
and so do i settle from a sleep that is a sleep no more but a curse from which i will never return

the darkness settles

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
