dark lullaby

The aftermath of extreme pain and heartbreak..a way to cope and be strong.

Silhouette of broken hearts

Never wanted you to see the darkest part of me
I whisper your name hoping it somehow holds the key
This is who I am when I don't know myself anymore
Insidious bleakness infects my thoughts hollowing out my core.

Perpetual fragrance of black roses spread as I compose this dark lullaby
Oh shadow butterfly save me help nullify my shattered heart
How do I justify at times wanting to give up and die but not before one last kiss my eternal goodbye.

I stare into blackness... It stares back at me enticing, inviting
So tired of fighting, giving my all and everything while always trying
Descending slowly into the midst of the reaper wondering if he'll think I'm a keeper
I smile at this thought as this dark silhouette starts to pull me deeper

Just know my final heartbeats will be beating the syllables of you're name
Everything I ever said I meant! to me our precious time never was a game
Hold me now the fear is leaving my heart is slowing... Barely breathing

Let me take you when I go.... As my cherished memories I don't wanna do this on my own.
Can I just hold on? One last kiss before I'm gone....

My heart now gone I fade out then am reborn to this darkness song.

Slowly fading away it's dark and cold.... I'm gone
A voice screams from this darkness within begging to feel again
I'm not strong enough... But perhaps someday we will meet again hopefully by then I've quelled my darkness from within.

Did you get what you want from me?
Broken promises and dreams?
Turn around I'm now empty and back to what I have to be
A monster that's inside of me all the love drained right out of me so this is who I have to be.

Once again the shadow man I am him and he is me.


Heartbreak, Heartbroken

Few are caught in a web of dark emotions - well brought out. We have to fight on in life to keep our heads above water - siva
