Darkness beckons
It calls for you
A total blackness
Approaches from within
A terrifying thought
To be completely engulfed
By your own
Do others give in sometimes
Do they even have this
Darkeness in them
You cannot ask
The darkness distracts with
For this is your battle
Others don’t matter
The darkness is upon you
And they cannot help
But do not fear
As the darkness comes
So too shall it pass
The less you fight it
The easier it goes
You can’t hold back the night.
