"I solemnly swear that I am up to no good"

The Color of sorrow that drips from your mourning heart
That fills your somber and empty mind

The shadow that hurdles you into a deep slumber

Enclosing your mind for the dreaded night
The color the sky turns when the darkest cloud looms above

As the rain thunders down on your head

The thing that makes you want to forget

That brings a pain you never leave
The color of the cat that crosses your path
And leaves the superstitious frightened

The way the stars seem to stand out

Against the painted and gloomy night sky
The shimmer of the abandoned roads
That are silent after the storm
The waves on the reapers darkened robes

After he has taken someone loved
The feeling in her deepest soul
As she cries lone in the dark

The thing that leaves you wondering

And leaves you to your most terrifying thoughts
