Depths

I don’t feel like staying apart

It slips my hand and retires me hollow

Into the depths of the darkness

As the cold grips my heart

Freezing it onto the shallows of darkness

Into the depths of the darkness

It makes me uncertain, restless

I see a fractured self

Awaiting someone to fix it

Giving me enough love to warm my heart

Into the depths of the darkness

I find myself wounded

Bleeding wounds of the distance

That once never was

For what once was

A gleaming ray of the bright

Into the depths of the darkness

I lay barren

For I can no more

Weather the light­­­
