The Darkness engulfs me
I know I can't win, yet I plea
I beg for my life, my passion, my love
The freedom is dangled just out of reach
Slowly I realize it is a game I'll never win
I succumb to the Darkness
It's cold fingers rush over me
chilling me to the bone
One last burst of a struggle escapes me
And then my Failure takes over
The Darkness sees my Failure and racecs to meet it
It is my weakness
Slowly I drown in my own despair
and am left to Darkness and Failure
