The Dark Places

What is it that torments my mind and soul
It creeps in when least expected
Surrounds my heart, crushes my soul, darkens my light.

A dark angel trapped by the light for so long
Now emerges to hurt those I love
To take from me what I took from it.

Why must there always be a battle
Why must I be condemned to this madness and torture
It’s a heavy burden to place on those that love me

The dark places in my soul grow thicker
It’s harder to make it through in the light of a single day
An imposing suffering – pushing the air from my lungs – before the falling of night

Unable to see the rising sun is a terrible plight.
