The Darkness Descends

The darkness is descending again
Wrapping it’s arms around me
All enveloping, all encompassing
I have both forgotten yet deep down know what’s to come

Sometimes it’s like a fog
Caressing the corners of my mind
Teasing me and tempting me
Taking me to places i don’t always want to go

To the edge, a precipice
A yawning black canyon
The darkness seemingly stretching on forever
The small light not yet seen

It brings with it the confusion
The pain
The helplessness
The End?

If i weren’t so scared, i would acknowledge it
The slight warmth of a familiar feeling
But i need to be scared
It’s the only hope of fighting it
