Dark is the hole to which I have fallen, misery and pain is my ultimate calling.
Take me away from this place I am in to a world without pain on which I depend.
High above the clouds I do fly, where all is forgotten at least for a while.
Suddenly reality rushes back in and the hurts of the world are my only friend.
So back to the demon who comforts my life and takes away all of my strife.
Deeper and deeper I do fall, until I have built an impenetrable wall.
Suddenly I wake from my dream in the night to a brilliant and piercing indelible light.
Hope comes to me like the rushing wind and soon my life is worth living again.
