Drown Me Blue: Lamentation

dark figures haunt our dreams
dark nightmares mute our screams
darkest night will fall
darkened whispers call
black is the shade of night
colored in numbing fright
clouds fill the weeping sky
rain gives a drenching sigh

no relief
no salvation
no belief
no redemption

so pure the touch of pain
body aches as mind is slain
paleness of sightless eyes
gazes as cold as ice
forevermore the light has faded
source of life incinerated
stars have disappeared
silenced atmosphere

eat the fruit of death
we don't need another breath
stripped of beauty, stripped of grace
surrender to the cold embrace
no slumber for our kind
suffering is what we'll find
fires sear the tender flesh
drink the foulest bitterness
