Try this:

Black Death -- by Lauren Smith -

A black death awaits me
As I wander through darkness
His embracing arms
Points to me through the crowd
It is my turn to leave
This painful black abyss
Where sorrow surrounds me
Holding me within this hell
It is far better to go with him
Than live in this world
Where nothing is as it seems
And the one person you could trust
Abandons you and leaves you
In utter hopelessness
This world, where the best
That has ever occurred to you
Is taken in its infancy
And destroyed before it has time to grow
Love is gone and devoid
Of all emotion
He says he loves me,
But how can he when he leaves
And expects me to find my way back in utter darkness
Nay, I would rather depart this life
In a blaze of glory
Dying for love
And its hopeless cause
Then live a life that has no purpose
As I breathe, Death comes closer
His arms wide open
He stops before me
Grinning, he selfishly departs.
Leaving me lost and alone yet again
Will no one rid me of this black eternity? - Copyright: December 8, 2001
