I feel them closing in,
The clouds of Night descend again.
Covering me in Darkness deep and vast,
Surrounding me with Sadness I feel will never pass.
You scream at me from far away,
I struggle to make sense of what you say.
I am lost and I am alone in this Place,
My emotions and my very existence - erased.
I close my eyes,
a feeble attempt to block out the Pain.
I open them only to see that Nothingness,
In all of its coldness and cruelty, still remains.
Why must I come here,
And why can’t I truly leave?
What is this hold the Abyss has over me?
I can walk away for a time, but will I ever be free?
