The Silent Darkness

The silent darkness
It is my bound to me by blood
Without a choice or say

It protects from all evil,
As well as the good that comes from life
It is a parasite, a leech, a taker

I give, you give, all that you have left
It takes an takes past the point of convulsion
Unaccompanied by a warning

But still we hold on to
Our savior
Our liberator
Our weakness

It befriends me and you
A breeding ground
For guilt
For sadness
For silence

My friend, my enemy whom I can't escape
The silent darkness
