Dark sets in

My body's cold, as dark sets in
I dread the last light wane
Hold me tight, tell me it's alright

But alone I am again
Trying to find what's sane
My body's cold as dark sets in

My demons, products of my sin
Forever I've tried to tame
Hold me tight, tell me it's alright

Looking for just one win
But sorrow is always the same 
My body's cold as dark sets in

Longing for a friend, an end
To subtlety soothe the pain
My body's cold as dark sets in
Hold me tight, tell me it's alright

    Expounds on the darker side of living, while bound to the restraints of a strict form ~ Villanelle and Pantoum are forms I really enjoy reading and writing ~ and enjoyable read!
