darkness only hangs out in the attic

 

darkness only hangs out in the attic

daily distractions destroy nearly every single thing that once was

where did i go?                      addictions linger and haunt

chipping away at everything that was in different time

in the mind behind these eyes

what kind of reality darkens and looms above thy head?

rain just poured down and left it all for dead

 

the break in the clouds lies just out of reach

one finds comfort in words in a book,  while another finds it in a dissipated look

daily distractions destroy nearly every single thing that once was

where did i go?                      addictions linger and haunt

chipping away at everything that was in different time

in the mind behind these eyes,     dismal nightfall keeps the company

and yet darkness only hangs out in the attic
