Dark calls

Depression and sadness
Recession and deep pain
Falling in the way
Falling away

One by one
The dark calls
To the weary
To the fearful and brave
To the young and quaint

One by one
They heed
The dark call
One tells one
About the solace
They might find

They do not know
The dark only wishes
To eat them up
Eat them in reduced nothingness
Where no fighting energy
Is left in the veins
