Sometimes on the darkest day,
When light is but a fading thought.
I sit upon the edge of you,
Wondering if this is all for naught.
Your beauty is truly sublime.
You offer is hard to resist.
An escape from the subprime,
Where redemption may still exist.
Your whispers smell of sweet decay,
Staring down into your warm embrace.
Your promises to take the pain away,
Remind me of my best friends face.
Knowing the loss you bring to others,
Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers,
Not to mention friends and lovers.
Makes me crawl and back away.
To escape the void…
At least, for one more day.
