Black Cancer

It has no name

No face

Just a voice

I' ve torn and burnt my flesh 

Scattered my mind into a far abyss

But to no prevail it still remains

Its whispery voice piercing through my head

It infects my cracked heart like a black cancer

Till I go numb

My boby filled with dark whispers

Making my thoughts not my own

I remain a hollow shell

But I could not let it win

So I killed this thing inside me

I took away its home I left it no place to go

If there is any part of me in these ruins

My last true word are

Dont ever let the devil in

Because the devil always wins
