"Goodnight", my mother whispered as she closed the door.
I nodded, smiling as if everything was okay.
Nothing could take away the fear, the overwhelming desire to run until you collapse from exhaustion.
Nothing was okay
I clung to the last sounds I would hear that night... f f a o d o i t n s g t e p s
My chest tightened and I began to shake
It was c-c-cold so cold
The Dark had overtaken everything...
The only thing left was Dry Empty Space
Dead whispers drifted Trapping me through my head
Every C R A C K Every D E N T In the wall seemed to scream
I clutched my ears, begging it to stop
No one believed me. Everyone thought I was some crazy teenager Going through a stage
But no DARK had come And he had chosen me
I was lost... Lost in the pain
Lost in the darkness
