    I watch and wait
    As the darkness takes over the sky’s
    The day is coming to an end
    As it slowly loses its light and dies.

    As the darkness takes over
    A peace comes along
    It’s a feeling of protection,
    Nothing will go wrong.

    No one will go out in the dark
    They are afraid of what’s not there
    I’m not sure why…
    Maybe just a fear they can not bear.

    It makes it safe for me though
    To go out for as long as I want.
    There won’t be anything around
    To come along and haunt.

    The darkness feels so safe…
    A sense of belonging remains.
    It’s almost like I can feel it
    Slowly filling my veins…

    Wait this isn’t right…
    What’s going on?
    The feeling of protection
    Has suddenly gone.

    Now I feel myself running
    But what am I running from?
    I look around
    Feeling so numb

    The cold air
    Slowly chills me to the bone
    I start to realise
    I’m not alone…

    Something is there
    In the darkness, hiding away.
    Am I safe?
    It’s not possible to say.

    So I run and run
    Until I can’t breathe anymore.
    Again I look around
    My lungs feel so sore.

    I sit on the grass
    As the darkness get’s stronger.
    I don’t think it’s gonna wait now.
    At least not for much longer.

    I stumble to my feet
    And try to get home
    But the darkness is all there is now
    As this field, I roam.

    This is when I realise
    That the darkness has won…
    It’s absorbed me now
    And it ways a ton.

    As I wonder
    If I can ever return to the light…
    I get carried off
    Into the darkness of the night.
