Darkness

What have I done
Why do I stand in darkness
Why am I without hope
Why did I care

A bright light within me
Burning to illuminate my dreams
Now only ash remains
As black as my nightmare

I shared my torch of life
With another
And what a mistake I made
For I tried to be selfless

I got selfish
And fell in love
Took away pain
And in turn offered hope

And now I scream for respite
As I stumble across death
Crying for I cannot see
Looking for a way out
