A Manic's Waltz

Fading away from this oppressive light

drifting into an endless night

Happiness renewed under different circumstance

Embracing the energy of this maniacal dance

On ethereal wings I flee from my spark

Dangerously close to unending dark

Pain becomes forgiven as a welcome alternative

Suppressing the thought of enduring initiative

Motivation rekindled to stomp out this demon

Unsure of my desire to become a free man
