Nevermore.

I am but a shadow;
I fade into the night.
The dark creeps in upon me;
The void, it fills my sight.

Each breath is but a moment;
I never could get back.
And life is but a fleeting glance,
A shadow at my back...

[and out of the dark, rose “nevermore”]
...

Ominous figures of inky black, amassed upon this shore;
The messengers of years gone by, shall pass me by no more...

For each breath is but a moment;
Each sunrise fades to black.
And though the shadows come for me,
Still, I never could look back...

[into the night we all shall fade; from dirt we rise, to dirt repaid]

For I am but a shadow; 
I must fade into the night.
Though this dark, it moves upon me,
Still, I revel in the light.

[and the darkness whispered, “nevermore”]

I knelt upon this barren land, death trickling down my spine;
And as I watched my shadows fall, I cherished what was mine.


[and darkness descended upon my shores...in masses, singing “nevermore”]
