I pledge my soul, my innocence away
I beg to die upon this day.
I fall into the blackened abyss
Bleeding out “I’m sick of this!”

Leave me alone to face the pain
I’ll breathe my death tied to this chain
Let them know once I am slain
Of all the misery I bore in vain.

Let me drift alone and lost
Let the shadows turn me to frost
Forget all boundaries I’ve crossed
Bury me now no matter what the cost.

There is nothing beyond my realm of dark
Only my hand’s eternal mark
Of a dreaded night’s insane spark
For a journey on which I must embark.

Tears won’t wash away my woe
Blazing rage won’t kill the foe
Not even death will thaw the snow
Upon my spirit, this embargo.

I pledge my soul, my innocence away
I beg to die upon this day.
I fall into the blackened abyss
Bleeding out “I’m sick of this!”

I'd never felt so lost and betrayed, like the only thing that could save me had left me to drown.

Thanks! I wrote the beginning in a fiery combustion of tears, then finished it up later that night after it settled down.
