Inside this dark cave
That’s crushing my heart
I long for your touch
Like a miner for light.

I gasp out for air
But only breathe coal
Because in your absence
I’ll never be whole.

I wipe away tears
And put on a smile
I lie to my heart
That I’ll dig myself out.

There’s nothing but darkness
And walls that surround me
I’m thinking that maybe
I should just give in.

I’m no longer human
Just bearly a shell
I try to move forward
But fall down again.

My arms are now tired
From digging this hole
My heart is now choking
With dirt from the wall.

I cry out for help
But the sound doesn’t carry
I’ll die in this hole
In darkness I’ll bury.
