Sinking you to the brink of oblivion

A billion stars are no match for such a grip

For it turns hate inwards burning the soul

The heart staggers to find it’s beat

Consuming pain burns the purpose for living

A null mercy, nobody knows

A senseless wooden brain

Carving blank moments

That will return.
