Darkness consumes everything,

Like fire, but cold instead of hot.

The shadows in my mind eat away

At what little confidence I have.

Black thoughts eclipse the happiness,

But then you come along

And for once in my life,

I know that I deserve more

Than this inky gloom.

My brain is submerged in shade,

Until I look upon your face

And I see the love in your eyes,

Shining so bright, so true.

I was lost, wandering alone,

In the gloaming,

Calling out in fear and pain,

But you have erased my misery

With the adoration you provide.

You have saved me from myself,

And pulled me from my depression.
