Dark Cellar

 (Lee)

Black clouds gather to guard the dawn
Closely, vigilantly upon
Not letting through a glimpse of light
The beginning of an endless night
I unlock the latch of the trap door
And instantly feel the force
It starts to grip my arm tightly
Pulling me down the steep spiral slowly

All alone in my dark cellar, I hear the echoes of your voice
So enchanting, yet so taunting…enticing me to go deeper
All alone in my dark cellar, I see imagery of our past
So realistic, yet so surreal…watching me fall forever and ever

This pit of mine is bottomless
I'm blinded by sheer darkness
The fragrance is so familiar
Yet my senses are still bewildered
I've fallen in love with this drowning
My heart and my mind are pounding
Battling to see which breaks first
The last jigsaw piece of the curse

I keep tearing at my own flesh to dampen the pain buried so deep
I keep digging in my aching heart for traces of you I want to keep
The climb back up is too hard, just leave me here and let me lie down
While I relive those vivid moments you held my heart in your cold hands
