Crestfallen

Crestfallen

I cry a tear of hope but it is lost in helplessnessThe darkness eats away at the very embers of my soulFor the deepest love I had has dissolved before my eyesMy sorrow is bleak, I beg for deliveranceLord, in your mercy, hear my prayerAll emotion is consumed by an inner silenceAll grief is unassuaged by disconsulate tearsI want for nothing, I live for nothingI am waiting to die but I am afraid of dyingLord, in your mercy, hear my prayerCrestfallen emotionWallowing in guiltand drowning for evermoreFalling deeper into fearMy inner self is nowa sleeper of stoneHelp me.
