better or verse

the dips and lows the sighs and woes
how deep dark gets before it glows

it must be right, it does hold true
they say there’s light beyond deep blue

where could i be in all this maze
my body numb, mind in a daze

will i know when its time for me
to part with this cacophony

will it be nice when its so still
will i run back beyond the hill

can i stay here and be with me
can i be me and live in me

can i live here eternally
