The Dark Place. Have you been there?

 

i have been to that dark place

i have felt its cold dank air

captive to its rancid presence

trapped by its ruthless snare

 

have you been there?

 

have you choked and gasped for breath

has the blood dripped through your veins

have you gagged on desperation

reduced to smeared dark stains

 

have you been there?

 

have you had no reprise

been clutched by fear

held the last feeble strand

faced the harsh cruel sneer

 

have you been there?

 

have you?

 

have you lived it, have you felt it?

have you fallen without choice?

have you, have you really?

no?

silence your voice.
