Darkness crept into their lives.
Collapsing hope from all sides.
Casting ugly shadows of doubt,
destroying any lingering pride.
Pervasive sorrow seized hold;
repelling every source of light.
There was nothing left to grip
in the vortex of eternal night.
They fell into the deepest hole;
with depression, black as coal.
Despair offered no plan to flee.
In the pit they’re doomed to be.
Drifting forever in a black abyss.
It’s cold embrace, a deadly kiss.
They sink into the spiraling mire.
Sadness reigns the realm of dire.
