The darkness is surrounding me so that I can't breathe
wrapping its cold sharp fingers completely around me
I'm in so much pain all I can do is silently scream
on the outside I'm all good, happy is how I seem
my fear cradles me in its thick stoney embrace
the light is leaving me all that's left is a trace
standing high upon this shambled eternal cliff
here dark meets light, many cries come from this rift
I'm confused, hurt not knowing where to turn
my soul so hot, in minutes it will start to burn
I must leave this place and not turn back
but the way has pieces missing from its track
I'm screaming for help and only a few can hear
"pull me from this place" my eyes full in tears.
