The soul dissolves in despair.
The darkness becomes me.
Hiding away from the light of the world,
waiting demons to break my shackles free.
Solitude never felt sweeter
as the vapours of vengeance flow.
O spirits above, help thine sister,
deliver her soul free to let go.
If you thought you could just walk out;
crush past days beneath your feet.
I’ll do your beliefs wrong;
guide you to your defeat.
May your grief keep you company
whilst you try to undo the wrongs.
But the doom of past engulfs you;
as your cries drown with the night songs.
And then the night seems silent.
It whispers summons to early dawn.
I lie beneath the dousing stars;
my soul redeemed, my sores long gone.
