Light in Darkness

Like a failing leaf I stumble 
Falling into oblivion I shudder

Watching with eyes wide shut
I forsake convention for bliss

Inviting me is the darkness eternal
Underneath the layers of dust

Can't fathom what lies beyond
Perhaps a smile of a loved one 

Perhaps a face not seen for long
embrace not held when it was time

A heart can only take so much
Perhaps mine is made of stone

Beneath every smile, every breath
It aches it shatters it melts it breaks

The world calls to me oblivious
Not knowing how I loath its existence

Glimmers of happiness, a child's voice
a companion's embrace, light in darkness
