As darkness approaches  My mind just seems to know  This is time  The time when I should go.  The thoughts that fill my head They are nothing new I just wish I couldnt hear them I don't know what to do.  The darkness is upon me And my minds ways are set This is time I know I won't regret.  They tell me I'm not worth it They tell me I'm pathetic I know all they say is true Though they sound poetic.  Darkness settles all around My mind never eases This is time The pain never seizes.  Every bone inside me quakes  I'm scared to follow through I shouldn't be here I know that to be true.  As darkness lifts I made it through the night Next time Ill follow through. I just might.
