Go away, and leave me be
Let me rest eternally
Shroud myself in darkness
Where I can never be hurt
Close my eyes and sigh
As I slip slowly away
Settle in the emptiness
I’ve made for myself
An emptiness that cannot be filled
Let me wash away the feelings
The tides of emotion slowly turn to calm
As I happily embrace my comforting lies
Please leave me be, for now and ever
As I sink slowly into oblivion
