In The Hollows Of My Black Heart

In the hollows of my black heart

Is where I keep you near

Plenty of darkness to feed from

Plenty of memories to fear

-

In the hollows of my black heart

Is where I seek to hide

No light to blind my cold eyes

An abyss that's open wide

-

In the hollows of my black heart

There lies a secret box

Never found, and never opened

And guarded by a pox

-

In the hollows of my black heart

Cries deep and full of pain

Echo through the caverns

To shake down blood red rain

-

In the hollows of my black heart

I lay motionless and dead

Hoping for a hero

To lay a kiss upon my head

-

In the hollows of my black heart

Creep creatures not yet named

Eyes that shine in darkness

For my actions they are blamed

-

In the hollows of my black heart

Is where I keep you near

And if you listened closely

You're the only one I fear

The End
