The arms reach out from the darkness I see,
The hands stretch farther beckoning to me...
Light is gone from this place of obscenity,
Darkness goes on from miles to infinity.
This dark-lit place of no return,
Is full of things that my heart yearns.
I step closer and closer to the edge of nothing,
While remembering the face of the one I'm loving.
Staggering steps back make the world fall apart,
As I realize the ones I'm hurting with this dreadful start.
The faces fly by clouding my vision,
They make me continue this fateful mission.
The faces tell me the things that hurt most,
Because they know I am as fragile as a rose.
But, because of the path that I chose,
I will no longer live with my foes.
