Emotions That Bear No Name

You know, the cold void in your mind
The type that makes your sanity go blind
It lingers long and turns your lips blue
It sticks your vocal chords stuck like glue
Your lungs shrink as you try to breathe
It drops you onto your knees in defeat
It nibbles your meat and drains all the heat
A blackened disease that leaves you deceased

As the silver kisses your skin, it remains
You try to stay calm, you try to stay sane
But you hear it calling and shouting your name
Making you scream and create crimson stains
The silver devours your skin as you cry
You're asking it screaming, asking it why
Full saturation just passes you by
Light always seems to escape from your eyes
