I Met You In a Darkened Room

I met you in a darkened room.

A room where I would cry and cry.
My heart was laying on my bed,
daily I wanted to die.
I tried to strangle my life away,
then I met you in my darkened room.

I met you in my deep insides,
the cobwebs were thickened
by my unwanted lies,
the deceit in my heart,
and the pain that choked out this life.

I met you in my secret place,
one that I tried to embrace.
I let myself go into a mesmerizing haze,
while the people around me 
tried to find me in the maze.

I met you in this darkened room,
where I thought light could not consume.
Then a bright light took over my sight,
and I became unhardened,
life no longer seemed like a war to fight.
