Lullaby of Darkness

I lost time's tick to tacit sanctum there,
Drifting entranced, unable to arise.

Why resist the sweet lullaby of darkness?
Let your limbs grow heavy
Let your mind dull its sharpness

Why fret over revenge or violence?
When in turn you can except the silence?

Let the shadow bound symphonies play their violins
No need for fear, welcome to my asylum
So just rest your eyes, and enjoy the silence

Why resist the lullaby of the darkness?
Just let it in, and end the violence.

Lying here in the dark tonight
Believing it when I say there's no light

There is some type of darkness I feel
It hurts so much, but it isn't real

It feels dark, hollow and empty
All of my sadness and agony

Form a pit in my gut
I clench it tight
Hoping for the pain to go away
Only it doesn't go away

I lay there and cry
Curled up and dying inside
I don't know what to do
I don't know what to say

Who will save me
I don't know
I only survive the night
When I hear the angels sing

Sing their soft lullaby
I slowly drift away
To a gentle sleep
But the pit still remains

All of the pain still lingers
The angel's song just saves me
But for how long?

Author's Note
When darkness descends beware
Of the demons that live within

They will distort your sanity
When darkness descends beware
Of the demons that live within

They will distort your sanity
you come undone inside again
