OF A DARK PLACE

OF A DARK PLACEby, Matthew T. Borders   When happiness is all goneAnd hope can't be foundWhen you've fallen in a pool of self pittyAnd with your last breath you nearly drownYou will finally know the placeThat I call home sweet homeIt is the place that you sent meBut I moved in and made it my own And one day like a lightCame freedom from the painIt was when my mind found numbnessThat your haunting soul was slainBut I stayed there in teh blacknessLicking the blood that I had spiltWhen I found that guarded chestWhere you hide away your guilt So maybe I opened up that boxShouldn't you know how I feelWoefull cries are my allyAnd your happiness is mine to stealOh it is a dark, dark casiumThat won't go until you've numbed your mindHow do you like the place you createdWhen you left me behind. TimeOh time stands stillLong enough to pass us byIt won't come around untilThe new daylight glimmersA ray of light where hope is foundFInally I will climb out and leave youWhere once I had fallen down
