The poem is below.


Resting in cold darkness
a place I truly would never miss 
If I every left this place
Darken Dreams 
is what my soul bleeds
coldness is on my skin 
is hard to breath within 
what others think is fantasy 
I think Pain 
I could no longer remember 
what it feels like 
to be warm 
what it feels like to be Loved
Oh, how the rain been coming down 
with no end to this darkness
my hands and fingers rubbing together 
trying to feel the warmth 
but all I feel is the numbness 
that is taken place
Oh, how I can no longer feel my face
what a disgrace
My hair is long and black 
my eyes are gray blue 
yet green when I get mean
the color of the sand 
that is underneath my feet
tells me so many things
the tasting of rain 
tells me I'm still in pain
but not insane 
Oh' hear comes more rain 
my flesh is getting weaker by the days
by blood is flowing like the sea
Oh, I feel I cannot breath
my lungs need fresh air
my tongue is dry 
my body feels like ice
memories that drew me back to him
the one who made me like this
my mind has grown dim 
but my eyes see all things
even in Darken Dreams
Oh, how I do scream
Dark Angel is cutting at me deep
but I will never give in 
I will not let him take my innocence of truth
I will never let that part of me go
He is killing at my emotions 
stalking me out 
watching my ever moves 
he is something that is so intoxicated
he is a nightmare 
But I will never let him take my crown.
