Darkness Overwhelms

Darkness overwhelms as night falls

Daylight seems so far away

The tunnel stretches, night continues

Daylight seems so far away

Dreams of light and feeling warm

Daylight seems so far away

Happiness comes in waves

An ocean crashing on rocks

Bashing away the jagged craves

Of over depressive talks

As the waves slowly recede

The darkness envelopes the air

In comes the oppressive need

The darkness doesn't play fair
