INSIDE THE VOID

Is it dark in there?

Can you see my face?

Is it dark in there?

Can you see anyplace?

Is it silent in there?

Can you hear my voice?

Is it silent in there?

Do you have a choice?

Is it cold in there?

Is your heart frozen shut?

With the warmth of my love,

Through the cold can I cut?

Can you feel my touch?

Can you feel my hand?

Do you know I am here?

Does your heart understand?

Please use all your senses.

Please come back to me.

I will give you my life.

I will set your soul free.

Too long in the void,

Too long in the dark.

If I kiss your pale lips,

Will it give you the spark?

To bring you around,

To make you come back,

Into the light,

And out of the black.

Please hear my voice,

Please feel my touch,

Please come back to me.

I love you so much.

But if you stay,

My promise I’ll keep.

To join you in the void,

And, forever, with you sleep.
