Hiding Place

It is so dark here, in my mind. Lost and alone, the bitter tears come forth, evidence of my brokes spirit. Hold me sweet one, don't let me go; I don't have long, The remedy for my pain seeps through my body, soothing my soul. The darkness will be over soon. I am calm in your arms, the only safe place I have ever known; A place to hide from myself. Don't let me go, I need you... I can't do this on my own. I don't have the strength to fight this any longer, life is swallowing me into it's murky depths from which I cannot escape. My heart begins to slow. The part of me willing it to perservere is slipping away with the unsteady beat. My blood does not course so hard, It turns cold and thick in my veins. Kiss me, love, and rock me gently as I fall into a sleep so deep I shall never wake.
