'Gripping Darkness'

Falling into the abyss
succumbed to darkness
fear and terror abound
crushing my existence.

Nowhere I can find an ember
total hopelessness I realized
that life is a mortal darkness
for those who have no faith.

Existence is a finite stance
and is very short indeed
once you lost grip of it
total darkness comes.
