Darkness, Old Friend

Hello darkness, my old friend

I’ve come to talk to you again

I know you’re there, you never left

A loyal lover until the end

Your silence soothes this troubled mind

Your cold embrace, a calming bind

And when reality hits too hard

You temper well the daily grind

I hear you whisper, hear you weep

As I am bludgeoned even in sleep 

When no reprieve presents itself

You emerge straight from the deep

I’ve tales to tell you, stories to unfold

As life batters my stronghold 

I am bloodied, beaten and sore 

Standing defiant, reckless, bold

So listen to me patiently

darkness, old friend

I am in need of company

As I descend
