Show me a place, secluded, away

Somewhere, no one else can find me

A place where shadows come to play

And break the ties that now bind me

Dear night, fall fast, in winter months

Tis when I can be myself, and breathe

In the cold, where sighs can be seen

Crystals form, on my skin, unsheathed

And as they cling to me, oh, how I try

To escape the light, however stark

But I cannot face the glare, so blinding

Please, let me find, a place, in the dark
