Take Me

Darkness,
Black.
That’s all I can see.
Pain,
Cold.
That’s all I can feel.

Am I living?
I must be for the dead do not think.
They do not feel.
No, I am alive.

But then,
Where am I? Who am I?
Is anyone there?

Help.
I cried into the shadows.
I felt my throat,
Raw nerves rubbed against each other.
More Pain.
Yet I couldn’t hear a sound.

Loneliness.
Darkness,
Pain,
Fear.

I knew it was there.
I knew it was waiting.
It was only a matter of time.

I begged,
I pleaded.
Take me;

Spare me from this heartless void.
Save me from the lightless shadows.

End it here,
End it now.

Take Me.
