Darkness Rising


Darkness Rising

I just need time,
that's all it is
Time to sort it out,
to figure out why;
I was so angry
but now I'm losing care
No enthusiasm, no hurt
Pain my only out
Spiraling out of control -
But I'm sure it's all a phase
I just need time
I'll feel again ---
One day.... soon

So close, she's right here
but so far away
In a place I can't reach
Pretending it's real -
Hiding in plain sight,
thinking we can't see
that she sees there is no way out
Someone needs to reach in,
before it is too late
Darkness all consuming,
stealing the light from her eyes.
