Darkness Lingers

All the love I’ve experienced
Has felt like pain
Like a bolt of lightning
Through a warm spring rain

Left me shattered, broken
A shell of myself
Left to pick up the pieces
In this lonely hell

The dawn is waiting
On the other side
If the darkness lingers longer
I might not make it out alive

Hope hurts so much harder
When you’ve felt such loss
And fear tastes bitter
I can love, but at what cost?

Everything that’s precious
Can be stolen away
I can feel my cold heart breaking
Before love’s had a chance to fade

They tell me life gets brighter
But time’s not on my side
If the darkness lingers longer
I might not make it out alive

I can keep trying harder
To win this fight
But if the darkness lingers longer
I might not make it out alive

I bake. I write. What goes better together than a good story and a delicious fresh-baked pastry? Nothing. And I can give you both. Grab a hot cuppa and join me.
