When you run into darkness

Do you feel the weight of the world

Or does it lift from your shoulders

Like doubt after relief


Will you be free from your sins

Can you forget where you've been

By going where you haven't

By believing in the unknown


When you escape to oblivion

Will you feel free from the world

Or will you be searching

For the place you've always known


Does the darkness bring you home

Will it leave you hopeless and wondering

Or will you rely on its unknown path

Because you won't know who to love until you're lost

The author's comments:

When I wrote this piece I intended on Oblivion meaning the crazy unknown darkness you fall into when you don't know who to trust or who to let in, and you won't know who is meant for you until you are completely lost in its abyss...you won't know who to love until you're lost (inspired by the song 5AM, Amber Run).
