The Darkness

For a moment the darkness was gone.
For a moment there was a light at the end of the tunnel.
For a moment all my tears dried.
But that moment has past,
And the darkness returns.

For a moment my soul had peace.
For a moment my heart was content.
For a moment the emptiness was filled.
Now the love drains from my heart,
As I lie on my bed weeping throughout the night.

For a moment the pain numbed.
For a moment my life mattered.
For a moment the darkness could not reach me.
But once again the darkness consumes my being.
Once again my life is bleak.
Only this time the darkness has a name,
This time the darkness is you.
