The night is where I roam

A shrouded sunless home

Desperate now to be alone

-a silken black to call my own

Needless wantless solitude

Hopeless strength in fortitude

Stuck in useless interlude

Bloodless bones will serve as food

Lace will tear, your face will break

Shedding smiles in a velvet lake

Darkness you are free to take

Sightless eyes can never fake

Sourceless sounds can be intriguing

Stitch your mouth to keep from screaming

Pinch yourself to wake from dreaming

...But the light can be deceiving

To me this darkness is relieving
