You want to set me free?

Lights flicker, candles strewn
A silence so heavy it's smothering
As it coats the insides of my lungs
Cocoons my heart until there is nothing
A fine silver mist that envelopes my mind, my body, my soul
Weights, concrete shoes drag me down
Into the blackness of the pit of sorrow
So deep I cannot see the moon or the stars
Save me, creature of the night
Break the bondage of despair
Rescue me from the loneliness
That breaks my very heart in two
I cannot breathe, I cannot feel
As the wax runs down the candles, pooling around it's base
So does my blood around my feet
It's alright, I'm okay
I save the last breath for
You
