What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. -Plutarch

Forced out by a single thought
The illusions of light remain
From speaking about this dark hole new
I must endeavor to refrain

Keep it to myself, let no soul in
Embrace the darkness I know
Let this thought fester in mind
Let the illusions show

The show of lights that permeated
Every inch of my spirit
The very thing that drove out hate
Has let a shadow near it

Nothing is truly beyond salvage
This introverted death included
Yet no one can help it, to keep them safe
I must keep the truth secluded

Tears a hole in my mind when I wake
Makes an impossibility out of sleep
The shadows invading every corner
Of myself, pain they will reap

Lost the fight, then the war
Each one hopelessly battled
Leave a gaping hole in the heart
Incurable, I’m shaken, rattled

The evil unnamed that consumes me now
Has fought for control and won
The pain will burn, never stop
Until I’m dead and gone.

I have no idea where exactly I pulled this from, except that wherever it was, it's a cold place. Freezing cold. Zero Kelvin.
