On her soul, darkness sets in

blades dance across her skin,

as droplets faintly waltz to the floor

 

Pains she thought she’d let go

again take their hold

She’s again prisoner to her mind

 

She searches for light from within

Only to fall into the shadows of past

Her demons, they’re winning agian

 

A glance in the mirror reveals a face she recognizes no longer

A ghost of a woman, her empty shell

A stronger one of what she’s become

 

She holds back her tears,

Closes her eyes and covers her ears

as the screams and hurt rush back in

 

Again she fought,

Again, she fails,

again to her dark side succumbed
