emptiness of darkness

emptiness inside me...
like im in the middle of a black river.
endless black water,
free- falling from a waterfall.
how did i get here?
how do i escape...
before i drown...
in this ice cold, black river?
my soul is no longer filled with joy or happiness.
my whole being is lost in the black emotions i feel.
dark thoughts come to mind,
help me please before
i drowned in the ice cold, black river.
the beautiful sounds of the water crashing down from the free- falling waterfall.
so peaceful.
but the water is as black as black could ever be...
ice cold...
so dark out, with a black moon...
the darkness of evil fills me to the core.
but im still filled with emptiness...
lost in the middle of this black river.
how did i get here?
what direction do i go to set myself free?
drowning in my own pain...
watching my whole life drift away from my eyes.
