Now, here I stand, in the shadow that I claim to be my own.
Time flies on without a care. I’m too dark to care myself.
Even though I have you still, even though you’re not gone,
I feel alone without the love we shared before.
I listen as they all tell me not to feel alone,
Because they’re still here to care for me.
I swear I care about them too, but
As much as they want to help,
As much as they want to be enough,
They aren’t, and for that
I’m truly sorry.
Take a step into the darkness…
Let it surround you…
And you shall need your shadow no more.
