We are not broken

I am just a man clinging desperately to reality
My sanity fading before me
A constant battle is waged in my mind
To which there’s no end in sight

Enter a nightmare
Where gossamer threads peel back my skin
And bind me to darkness
They won’t relinquish their hold
Until my blood runs cold

This has taken possession of me
And darkened all my dreams
All my life
I am not broken

How can I protect against the walls of my home
If your seek the demon’s refuge look no further than the rafters above
A malignant shape now apparates


A wave of paranoia is washing over me
I can’t contain fear that’s pulling my life away

As I stare into this darkened space
I can slowly feel the press of their legs

Only in the darkness can they find my reprieve
This void without forms brings the creatures to my escape

But in light my strength restored
I pray it sustain me for just one day more

I will not just live my life in fear
I know soon it shall be my time
Till I have the strength to persevere
I will have to confide in the light
