A Bright World, Darkened ~ Charne Williams

The world suddenly dark
No protection, no hope
The idea of good people gone
The thought lost
In that night, a dark world began
The dark dwelled within and around me
Every bright light darkened
Every smile to a tear
All laughter to a painful screech
I try and reach, reach for the light
I couldn’t see it, it wasn’t bright
It pulled me back, it is a monster
I am a monster
I am no longer free.
