Dark Shadow

Death it speaks,
To me,
Fillin my head,
With negativity,
 Backward tears,
Roll up behind the eyes,
Echoing inside,
The silent cries,
Torn apart,
Pulled away,
As time devours,
Another day,
This dark shadow,
Follows and corrupts,
All my beliefs,
It interrupts,
Waking me,
 From every dream,
Dragging me deeper,
Into its scheme,
Without company,
 Company to keep,
Touching the darkness,
So deep,
By uncertain kindness,
Swallowed whole,
Into the core,
To the depth of the soul......................BAD-Mc..<3
