Poisoned by an illusion,

My inner light faded away…

I lost to a war that raged on around me, and I’ve succumbed to my wounds.

A bloody mess and hardly noticeable, he made it so I couldn’t feel again.

Internal glory beaten to oblivion, and I exhaustedly submitted.

How everything felt nice and warm, but how I was blind.

How could this happen to me, how could this be.

Take my soul, for home amongst the universe sounds like a rest I need.

It’s better to push the light away before the cloud that surrounds me swallows it whole.

Let me rest now, as the sound fades, it’s more peaceful…

I don’t want to spread the cancerous storm, for it’s my fight and my fight only…

I must protect you from the broken parts of me...
