Escaping the Darkness
Sitting in the dark,
Like a shield covering my heart,
Wondering why I can't feel.
No pain, no happiness,
A light is shining in the distance,
Like a star shining in the darkened sky.
It's too far away for me to reach it.
I can't stand being in the darkness any longer.
It's suffocating me,
I need to breathe.
I must try; I have to move toward it.
I need to move toward it, I need the light.
It's getting closer, it's getting brighter.
I felt the pain that has been inside for years.
I remember the happy times I had with my family,
Warmth, laughter, comfort,
I can almost see the entrance.
I'm crying the pain hurts so much,
Crying because I want blissful times again.
I need them.
Look, the light is right in front of me.
I can walk into it.
It's so pretty in here.
I wish I could stay here forever,
But the darkness is pulling me back toward it,
Like a vacuum that pulls in everything in its path.
I must fight it,
I like the light,
I need the light.
I will fight it!
