an endless search
finding death
wicked smiles greet her

laughter echoes
darkness beckons
shadows whisper
endless obsession

shattered beliefs
(remember to breathe)
hopeless she bleeds

frantic she screams
naked she weeps

an endless need
(remember to breathe)
forgotten dreams

resisting despair
exhaling fear
she opens her eyes
to find him smiling
and she smiles
