Let the dark unfold

Print this story

I feel empty, I feel cold
and I let the dark unfold
piece by piece you took away
and you ask me if I’m ok

you shattered my heart
and you ripped it apart
you stole my smile
buried for a while

you bottled up my tears,
wrapped up my fears,
put my love in a cup
and covered it up
put my heart in a cage
locked away my rage
and left me cold
you let the darkness unfold
