My legs dangle in the abyss
How much longer can I handle this?
My fingernails dig into the cliff-side 
I reach out, wide-eyed

I’m running out of breath 
I would do anything for assistance 
Except to tell you, to confess
Yet all that you offer is distance

My arms are quivering
I plead out to you, whispering,
I can’t do this, please help me
Take my hand and set me free.”

Your silence is rigid and stiff
As I hang from this cliff
All I want is some support 
Yet you always fall short 

With burning bones, I release my grasp
At that moment, I hear you gasp
You’re too late, watch me fall
I never truly mattered at all

In the end, no one will help
Whirling into the void all by myself
Left to fight the dark on my own 
The shadows engulf me, I am alone
