Haunted 10:50
As the Earth opened and swallowed her body As the sky came down and hid my tears As my soul turned black and darkness swallowed me As the red leaves fell to the cold, wet ground The ghost of her memory In all that I see I gaze into the water I can almost reach her hand When my fingers touch the surface and her face disappears All that remains are the waves Crashing against the shore As daylight fled and night came to be As the moon awoke and lit the pale stone As my cries were lost, amidst the screaming wind As the vision of her leaving, haunted my dreams As the days went by and the leaves joined the earth As the autumn departed and brought the cold of winter A life once lived, a life that was lost Like all on this Earth that come to an end They wither and die... so too did we

Screaming at the night, questions it couldn't answer All that it shouted back was silence In the black of the night the end came Bringing with it the death of my soul Blinding emotion, crippling fears Hands shaking, raised towards the sky In desperation I search the darkness Still no answer from the blackened night I awaken to the sound of the dawn breaking A painful sight, the sun piercing the clouds Shedding light on my misery and despair A reminder that this was no dream Blinding emotion, crippling fears Hands shaking, raised towards the sky In desperation I search the darkness Still no answer from the blackened night How do I move on? I plead with the sun It's rays respond no more than the night Leaving behind everything I once loved All that remains is cold, black & everlasting So begins the journey to find what lies beyond A painful step towards what might be my last I can't foresee what is to come I know only, it is no better than the past

The solitude is silent and complete I've never felt more alone… The darkness growing inside of me Weighs heavy upon my heart A cool breeze touches my face Reminding me that I'm still alive In these waning moments of life I can feel myself slipping away My sorrow runs cold and deep Like the lake which lies before me Flowing with the endless tears Of my hollow, desperate soul I stand forlorn upon the shores Staring vacantly into the distance The fog seeps silently across the water Drawing me in deeper and deeper My sorrow runs cold and deep Like the fog which surrounds me Seeping with the endless grief Of my bleak, mournful soul Life - These doleful shades Pale, dark and grey Cold – The seasons change But the sadness never fades Death - Take me away Far from all of this pain Alone – I shall remain To bask within my misery

I find myself reflecting more often these days Lost deep within myself I can’t seem to escape this The light that shines Has finally died I see darkness I am dead inside I find myself falling And I don’t even care I am tired of all this But I still can’t let go The light that shines Has finally died I see darkness I am dead inside For all that I give For everything I do I can’t stop myself from drifting further The light has died It no longer shines Darkness take me I am dead inside I find myself reflecting more often these days...

A great darkness fell Bringing forth great sorrow The light slowly fades Draping the world in shadow A darkness beyond dark Impenetrable and bleak Like a being of its own In silence gently seeps Reflections Of my soul Casting forth Misery and woe The world A bleak mirror A gateway Into my regret It's suffocates all life As it paints the landscape dead It steals away my sight And clouds my heavy head Deeper through the darkness My dismal path weaves If I don't find my way This will surely kill me Reflections Of my soul Casting forth Misery and woe The world A bleak mirror A gateway Into my regret The desolate creations of my failing mind The profound yearning of my desperate soul Forlorn to wander in solitude Endlessly searching for an end to this journey As hope abandons me I am content to close my eyes My body falls numb and broken And my soul silently cries I glimpse through the trees To find the image of you Distorted and fading And I realize that I'm not far
6.
I seek the place Where the Autumn breeze blows Where the leaves have fallen Painting the ground in gold I seek the place Where the horizon is grey Where the light reflects Gently upon the waves I can't seem to find this place It always seems beyond my grasp Though I know it can't be far I know this might be my last chance So I'll struggle on once more And carry on through the dark Until I find the morning light To find the place I dream about I seek the place Where I've been once before Where I've found contentment Leaving me wanting more I seek the place Where I am all alone Where no one else dwells That I can call my home
7.
The sun peered through the clouds In an otherwise colourles sky I looked around and took in the beauty For I knew this moment was mine... Now that I am back here again I feel somehow disappointed Things don't feel the same The last time I came this way I left inspired... Maybe it was the way the light cast shadows through the trees Maybe it was the gleam of the water as the waves rolled against the shore Maybe it was the late Autumn breeze that forewarned the arrival of Winter Maybe it was the timing of the song playing gently in my ears Maybe I'll never feel like that again for the hope inside me is gone Maybe I'll live out the rest of my days longing for the inspiration I felt Maybe it was only my imagination and I never really felt anything at all Maybe it was a second chance to reignite the spark within me Maybe it's still there hidden deep within the shadows of my soul Maybe I knowingly wasted away the only chance I ever had Maybe it was that perfect moment which I will forever strive to recreate Maybe it was that perfect moment which is forever gone
