Truth or Dare


Into the darkness, I reach out a hand,

where shadows play and light is banned.

My breathes decline and I gasp for air,

this has become a deadly game of truth or dare.

Do I dare to escape from this place,

run away from memories of your face?

Do I speak the truth of how I feel,

how the love still there is very much real.

My heart pulses and beats ever so slow,

of the pain and suffering you will never get to know.

My body becomes weary and falls so weak,

then I disappear into dreams of the dispair and the meek.
