AS darkness takes over

my plea is to be free,

but all it does 

is take over me.

I hope for a candle,

but no, it's to bright.

so instead,

I search for the right.

You are in my darkness,

so I search for  you instead.

You are the book,

thought I should've,

but never read.

We can live in darkness,


yet together.

No light, no not ever.

But we'll have each other,

and thats all we'll need,
