Darkness devours during the midnight hours
A beat of a heart in a world alone,
Running and crying with no place to hide.
A soul exposed
Shadows survive in the cradle of night,
Searching for truth in a restless mind.
Stabbing and pinching and feeling no pain.
Yet feeling it all
Again and again.
Darkness devours during the midnight hours.
To eat up a heart that knows no home,
Tearing at flesh already laid bare.
The sad truth is
Who knows...........who cares.............?
