The Night Gang

When the night gang came
They pinned me to my knees.
With my heart blown wide open
They took my love from me.
With tears in my eyes,
I called out to you
But my voice was too feint to reach you
And I couldn't chase these vultures away.

As my tears fell,
The hardened ground started to loosen
Simply because I was dying inside.
I couldn't bare the sight
To watch them destroy me.
So I remained suspended
As the horizon started to fade.
