Dark Life

Your tears will wash away the pretend,
Naked for all to see;
Your heart blank and blood blue,
Body cold, left to decay
Scavengers won’t touch you
Earth won’t take you in
You will be lost in the standstill,
Where even darkness dies
But you will breathe, live
As you are not at your end
You are at another beginning
Another cycle of Pain,
of Sorrow,
of Loneliness,
of Death
and Yet you will live.
