Love against Darkness

How it is to be in total darkness
Where no light shines but from the angel that tries to save me
Being sucked in from the realms of the hated and soon forgotten

How wonderful it is to see that there is still one that tries
The one that tries to save me, I wonder if she realizes
That it was my choice to be in the situation that I’m in
That no one, but myself is to blame

I am in this dark forsaken place for a reason
No just to be alone, but to be somewhere peaceful as well
A place where I won’t have to worry about anybody else
Such a paradise in which I believe in seeking

Why save somebody that is not misleading
The fact that I chose to live my life like this
Is the fact that I won’t have to deal with other problems
I don’t need to be saved so why do you even bother
I don’t want you to fall along the same road

The road I know you won’t like
And there you are, so beautiful and yet risking your life
The angel that has followed me into this dark realm
The realm in which I keep on falling with you following
I know it is hard to let me go, but for this once can you just consider

Just consider that even though you love me, it might be best to let me go
You can continue on with your precious life and let me end mine

That way, things can soon be fine
And there you go, you finally reached me
Holding me tight in your arms with tears falling from your eyes

I don’t believe it, but the light is growing more and more
I guess your love for me, is stronger than I could ever ask for
